Premium Times reports that the Federal Government has ordered the suspension of academic activities at UNILAG as students poured into the streets to protest the renaming of the institution.
UNILAG FM announced, a while ago, that all academic activities have been suspended for two weeks. Our reporter says students have already being sent home. They have been ordered to vacate their hostels by 11 a.m.
The students had earlier today barricaded the Third Mainland Bridge, which links the city’s Mainland to Lagos Island, in protest against name change.
However, a YNaija correspondent in the university says that students are doubting the credibility of the said announcement, as the memo containing the FG order isn’t signed and does not use the university’s usual font style.
We’ll bring you more on this story shortly.
