Students of the University of Lagos protested yesterday over the rustication of some students. They demanded for immediate and unconditional reinstatement of the 11 executive members of the institution Student’s Union of Government (SUG).
The protesters who didn’t mind the heavy rain, blocked the university main gate hindering students and visitors from entering the premises.
The students also demanded a call to lift the illegal ban on the UNILAG Students Union and improvement in welfare and conducive learning environment.
Meanwhile, Deputy Registrar, Information Unit of the institution, Toyin Adebule, in a telephone conversation with newsmen, denied that the protesters are UNILAG students.
Adebule added that the protesters were activists and rusticated students who lost their case in court.
He also said the school management have issued a press statement to that effect, informing the public that the University of Lagos students are not protesting rather, the gathering outside the gate consists of rusticated students and allies.
