Members of the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, and the Non-Academic Staff Union of Universities, NASU on Monday barred the Vice-Chancellor of the Lagos State University, Ojo Campus, Prof Olanrewaju Fagboun and students from gaining access to the premises.
It was gathered that the action was as a result of protest by the union members over non-payment of increment in salaries promised by the Lagos State Government after a year when the promise was made.
The State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu had earlier announced the reopening of tertiary institutions on September 14, 2020 for students in 300 and 400 levels due to the lockdown as a result of ravaging COVID-19 pandemic.
But, trouble started as early as 7 a.m. as union members took over the entrance of the university from security personnel and stoped both human and vehicular movements from going in and out of the premises.
However, the Vice Chancellor could not comment on the situation at the time filling this report.
