The students are protesting the increase in fees at LASU.
Over 100 students of the Lagos State University, LASU, have converged at the entrance to the office of the Lagos State Governor, Alausa, blocking the entrance.
Witnesses told PREMIUM TIMES that the students arrived in chartered buses and set up their cooking utensils in front of the gate.
“They came with beans and other food items and said they will cook their supper and pass the night there until the governor listens to them,” said a witness.
The students have been having a running battle with Governor Babatunde Fashola over the hike in their school fees that would see some students pay as high as N250,000 per session.
On Wednesday, eight students were arraigned before an Ikeja Magistrate Court by the police for alleged breach of public peace, after some students of the university who were protesting the school fees hike had blocked a section of the Lagos-Abeokuta expressway causing a massive traffic gridlock.
