Academic activities at the Lagos State University LASU failed to resume today September 14 as aggrieved members of four unions in the institution barricaded the entrance of the school preventing the Vice-Chancellor and students from gaining access into the Environment.

The unions involved in the protest includeds

 the Academic Staff Union of Universities

 the Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities, 

Non-Academic Staff Union,

 and the National Association of Academic Technologists.

The aggrieved members were protesting About the non-payment of the salary increment promised them by the Lagos State Government over a year ago, other government workers have received the increment but all the tertiary institutions in Lagos State were yet to be included

All attempt by the Vice-Chancellor to dialogue with NLC, ASUU and NASU members was not successful, as they insisted that no one will be allowed into the university premises until their demands are met by the state government.

Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu two weeks earlier announced that tertiary institutions in the state will be reopened today, September 14, 2020, after being shut for six months due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
