Management Orders Indefinite Closure Of Unilag Following Students’ Protests


SAN FRANCISCO, April 08, (THEWILL) – As a way of preventing the breakdown of law and order in view of Thursday's protests by students, the University of Lagos, UNILAG has been shut down indefinitely, according to a circular issued by the management on Thursday evening.

It reports that the Senate of the institution “considered the situation on campus occasioned by the ongoing agitation of the student body over poor electricity and water supply in the community, and the difficulty faced by the large number of students living off campus to attend classes as a result of the fuel crisis.”

Students were given till 10 am on Friday to vacate the school premises; even as they were assured that a decision to re-open the school for normal academic activities will be taken as soon as there is an improvement in municipal services.
