Police Officers are Stationed at UNILAG Gate - September 2013 - BellaNaija - 021

Protesting is the one thing students of the University of Lagos (UNILAG) won’t plan to do.

The Federal Government and the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) are still debating on the demands by university lecturers.

Yesterday, Sahara Reporters posted some images of police vans stationed at the University of Lagos gate as well as inside the campus.

According to news agency, UNILAG students began mobilizing through social media late last week, inviting other students to join in a protest that would likely take place at the gate of the institution.

If you recall, in May 2012 students of the institution were very vocal about the change of the school’s name to Moshood Abiola University. They took to the streets to protest against the decision by President Goodluck Jonathan.

    But… how can you stop a protest? Isn’t that a fundamental right? Stopping violent and disorderly protests is one thing but stopping students from marching peacefully can’t be legal.

      My dear,that as you have described happens in a society where fundamental rights are recognised and respected…..unfortunately that cannot be said for our beloved country.

    They have every right to protest. Gej and madam are here in NY shopping on 5th Ave with a lot of their hangers on roaming up and down the streets. Most of the politicians have their children abroad school on taxpayers funds while students back home have been denied education for three months now. What a messed up country! It is just a matter of time…

    Bella maybe u. should show pictures of the so called student. I was at the Unilag gate yesterday and the gate was locked. 3/4 of the people protesting are not students of any institution, theylooked more like mobilised touts. that why Unilag had to lock its gate. I even asked one of the touts what course was during in unilag and he could not answer. it looked more like a sponsored rally than Unilag student protesting. Unilag student usually start the protest from inside the school not from Bariga and not in danfo buses.
