LASU was shut owing to a students’ protest that turned violent.

Governor Babatunde Fashola of Lagos State has approved the immediate reopening of the Lagos State University (LASU) for normal academic activities.

This is contained in a statement signed by the Special Adviser to the Governor on Media, Hakeem Bello, and made available to newsmen on Friday in Ikeja.

The statement said the reopening was in the interest of students and in compliance with the recommendation of the state House of Assembly Ad-hoc Committee on the recent disturbances in the school.

According to the statement, the governor has also approved N51million for the repairs of the institution’s property and facilities damaged during the period.

Fashola urged the students to return peacefully for normal academic activities on Monday and to be of good conduct.

The authorities of the university had on Jan. 23 shut the institution following students’ protest over hike in fees and inability to access the registration portal for second semester examination.

The institution’s facilities were damaged during the protest.
