Members of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) and Non-Academic Staff Union of Universities (NASU) on Monday stopped the Vice-Chancellor of the Lagos State Univeristy (LASU), Prof Olanrewaju Fagboun and students from gaining access to premises.

Naija News reports that the action was as a result of protest by the union members over non-payment of increment in salaries promised by the Lagos State Government.

The groups had vowed to frustrate any plan to resume if their demands were not met.

The drama started as early as 7 am as union members took over the entrance of the university campus at Ojo from security personnel and turned back both human and vehicular movements from going in and out of the premises.

All entreaties by the vice-chancellor to prevail on the protesters was not heeded.

Recall that the Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu had asked tertiary institutions in the state to reopen on September 14, 2020.

Students in 300 and 400 levels were to resume Monday, with other members of staff that had been on lockdown as a result of ravaging COVID-19 pandemic.
