Reports just reaching us have it that the University of Lagos (UNILAG) has indefinitely shut down.
It was learnt that the students were asked to vacate the university following protest over fuel scarcity, lack of electricity, poor water supply, amongst other things.
It was also leant that the decision to shut down the university followed an emergency meeting of the institution’s Senate, which was conveyed to the students’ through a circular.
According to the circular, the senate “considered the situation on campus occasioned by the ongoing agitation of the student body over poor electricity and water supply in the community, and the difficulty faced by the large number of students living off campus to attend classes as a result of the fuel crisis.”
The management further noted that a decision to re-open the school for normal academic activities will be taken as soon as there is an improvement in municipal services.
