Some students of the Lagos State University (LASU) in Ojo staged a peaceful protest on Monday over the alleged torture of their colleagues by soldiers.


The protest was held in the early hours of the day as the students blocked the two gates leading into the school.

It is understood that the protest halted movement for a few hours.

Olaniyi Jeariogbe, the institution’s information officer, confirmed the development to TheCable Lifestyle.


Jeariogbe said the matter has been resolved, adding that activities are going on smoothly in the school.

“That (the protest) happened in the early hours of the morning. Everything is fine now. I’m presently at the office and other activities are ongoing as we speak. The students are no longer there. There is nothing like protest at the gate again. The gate is open to anyone that wants to come in and go out,” he said.

Jeariogbe, however, kept mum on what led to the protest.


When asked if the issues raised by the students are being looked into, he said: “You know students will always want to be students.”

This is coming a month after a man in military uniform was beaten up by irate students in UNIBEN.

The students also staged a protest over some colleagues of theirs who were reported to have been assaulted by military personnel in an ATM queue.
