The UNILAG Protest.

The National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) yesterday staged a solidarity protest rally that paralyzed academic activities at the University of Lagos (UNILAG), Akoka.
The rally saw protesting students carrying placards and hurling insults at management of the institution.

The UNILAG Senate had recently rusticated some executive members of University of Lagos Students Union (ULSU) for allegedly spearheading the protest that shut down the institution for several weeks in April.
The rustication terms which ranged from two to four semesters had earlier been protested by some of the affected students but with little or no effect in getting the varsity’s management to change its decision.
At the protest rally held at the institution’s Senate building yesterday, NANS representatives asked the management to rescind its decision, insisting that the rusticated students’ union leaders had not done anything unusual in mobilizing their colleagues to protest harsh conditions under which they were studying.
