The Yaba College of Technology, YabaTech, Lagos, says it has barred students from staying at lecture halls beyond 7.00 p.m. both during the week and at weekends.
The measure, according to the institution’s spokesperson, Charles Oni, is to check the practice of converting the lecture halls to hostels by the students.
Mr. Oni, in a statement on Saturday, said the ban would be in force until ongoing of renovation of the hostels was completed.
The ban was a reaction to the recent development in the college whereby students sleep at lecture halls due to lack of accommodation on the campus.
“It has come to the attention of the management that some students still evade security checks to hibernate and even sleep in lecture halls in spite of the subsisting ban.
“The hostels are undergoing renovation as many of you are aware, and efforts are on to beef up security around these same hostels in view of developments around the college.
“The hostels will be available for students’ use as soon as possible.
“Pending the conclusion of renovation and the expansion of security apparatus, no student should be found in any of the classrooms beyond 7.00 p.m.,’’ Mr. Oni said.
