Lagos State University (LASU) Students on Rampage! Disrupt Lectures, Stone VC & Destroy Properties



Lagos State University - January 2014 - BellaNaija

Students of the Lagos State University (LASU), Ojo, Lagos went on rampage today Thursday 23rd January 2014; disrupting the institution’s second semester examination and destroying properties.

The protest kicked off yesterday when the university’s registration portal was closed. Over 2000 students were yet to register for their second semester courses as exams were to begin today.

It is also revealed that banks were still collecting the increased tuition fee from students.

It led to the stoning of the University Vice Chancellor Professor John Obafunwa. According to P.M. News, an eye witness revealed that students threw sticks and stones at the VC’s convoy as he tried to escape through an alternative route beside Conoil Filling station.

The Student Union Government plead on behalf of the students but the VC said that the unregistered students are “insignificant” and would have to carry the session over.

The statement made students take matters into their hands.

    He who destroys others to get to the top will surely have a bigger destruction waiting for him at the point of his success.

    I doubt that the VC would have said that the students were “insignificant”. It more likely that he said that unregistered students were numerically insignificant (as in numbers), but unfortunately we have enthroned an Olodo culture in virtually all facets of our national life — if a politician loses a common primary, RIOT! If the govt changes the name of a university that it owns and funds, RIOT! Now that the students have rioted, disrupting exams and destroying public property, I guess that resolves the problem.

      According to reports from a LASU student I know, she said they were indeed trying to register for weeks but owing to the sheer number of students needing to register combined with the painfully slow online registration portal, it was almost impossible for all of them to register ontime as the portal kept crashing. They appealed to the schools management to extend registration for one or two more weeks, that was when the VC said no and insisted that exams continue.

    For LASU to be repositioned to excellence, some bad ways of
    doing things must change. After extension of registration for more
    than two times, some of the students still did not register;to
    register on the day of exam? Haba leaders of tomorrow! Destroying
    public properties wont reposition LASU to excellence.

    a more deliberate ploy by the cabal to frustrate lives of
    students despite sustained years of neglect by the state governing
    council. It’s a true show of shame.

    The Yoruba adage says; “Bobinrin ko ba dan ile oko meji wo ko ni mo eyi to dara.”
    This is just the students’ experience, the staff who championed the Aluta then “Hussein Must Go” are also receiving their results -No Vacancy, No Promotion- in full measure.

    This story doesn’t sit well with me, they are registering a day to their exams?seriously? well i guess its safe to assume they didn’t attend lectures, cos if i remember correctly u must be a registered student for your name to be on the attendance sheet…its an extreme case of “negligence” (for lack of a better word)that needs medical attention…. Their heads cant be screwed on right
