LASU students shut their gates against “abuse” by soldiers.


The students of Lagos State University, Ojo, have shut both gates leading to the school in protest against soldiers torturing some students last week.

A parent who could not exit the campus told The PUNCH that the students locked up both the Iyana-Iba and Ojo gates, thereby preventing both vehicular and pedestrian movement.

He said, β€œWe have been here for some hours. The students locked up both gates. Everywhere is filled with vehicles trying to come in and exit. The security men said the students shut the gates because their executives and some students were beaten by soldiers last week. We are all waiting at the gate, no movement.”

The institution’s Public Relations Officer promised to make enquiries on the cause of the protest and get back to our correspondent. But as of the time of filing this report, he had yet to reply to our enquiry as promised.
