Students of the University of Lagos (Unilag) were today forced to jump the gates of the instution in order to beat the 10am deadline given to vacate the school’s premises, following a circular posted on various notice boards on Thursday by the school’s Senate.
In the circular, the Senate ordered the students to vacate their halls of residence “in order to avoid further breakdown of law and order”, over an ongoing protest against poor electricity and water supply in the school community amidst the lingering nationwide fuel crisis that also affects student living off campus.
Following the expiration of the deadline, the hostel and school gates were locked with students still in the premises.
Apparently those that erred had to result to jumping the gate of the school’s major entrance and passing through a canal at the back of the school, in order to leave.
