The University of Lagos(UNILAG) now Moshood Abiola University, has been shut down amids protest by the University students over the Change of Name by the President Yesterday.
UNILAG FM announced a while ago that all academic activities have been suspended for two weeks and all students are already being sent home. They are to vacate their hostels by 11 a.m.
The students in revolt to the decision, barricaded the Third Mainland Bridge, which connects the lagos mainland to the Island, showing their displeasure against the Change of University’s name.
The students, currently without a subsisting student Union Government(SUG) inspired each other in the early hours of Wednesday to continue with the protest after tuesday’s Fruitless efforts.
The students, are seen in their large numbers protesting against the name change in various areas of the state including the Akoka campus of the university.
The reports also reveal that the students are occupying areas in Alagomeji, Yaba, Sabo and the university’s main gate.
The major event of the day is the fact that a number of lecturers and alumni of the school are joining the students in the protest which obviously are boosting the students morale that no harm shall be suffered after the protest, if successful.
The students pleaded that their institution should be left out of national politics which they believe might ruin the University’s half century reputation.
