It was a pandemonium as students and staffs of the Lagos State University, Ojoo (LASU) were locked outside the gate of the University by the protesting members of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), Non-Academic Staff Union of Universities (NASU) and the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC).
Members of ASUU, NASU and the NLC who staged protest over payment of minimum wage in the university prevented all forms of vehicular movement in and out of the University premises.
According to Channels News, the free flow of vehicular movement was hindered by the protesting members who gathered as early as 7:00 am and prevented both students and lecturers from gaining entrance.
The was report confirmed that even the Vice-Chancellor of the University, Professor Olanrewaju Fagboun was not spared as he was also locked out of the university gate.
Nigeria News World also gathered that the attempts of the Vice-Chancellor to dialogue with the engrieved University staffs was proven abortive as they insist that no one will be allowed into the university premises until their demands are met by the state government.
They claimed that an increment in their salaries was promised by the Lagos State government more than a year ago and the promise was yet to be fulfilled.
Following the announcement of the Lagos state governor that allows all tertiary institutions to resume on the 14th of September, LASU like other tertiary institutions in the state was to open after the COVID-19 pandemic break.
However, the resumption was jeopardized by the engrieved university staffs who displayed their displeasure to the state’s government.
