“In the wake of the violent protest by some

affected students of Lagos State University (LASU) over the

closure of the university portal forregistration of courses for

rain semester 2012/2013 examination, the university

management has decided to shut down the university

indefinitely .

“Also, examinations have been put off till

further notice. With this decision, students are expected to

vacate the university premises until further notice.”

This decision was contained in a bulletin, dated 23rd January,


Students of the institution had staged a protest on

Wednesday, 22nd, January over the closure of the portal but

the protest became violent on Thursday.

Sources told Talkloaded.Com that some of the students went

as far as physically attacking the Vice Chancellor and even

damage his vehicle.

Violence doesn’t resolve anything. I thought

students should know this and learn to dialogue at all times.
