Union members of the Lagos State University (LASU) have prevented Olanrewaju Fagbohun, the institution’s vice-chancellor, and students from entering the school premises.
The unions involved in the protest are the Academic Staff Union of Universities, the Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities, Non-Academic Staff Union, and the National Association of Academic Technologists.
The Lagos State government had directed that academic activities for final year students resume on Monday.
At about 7:00am, the union members took over the entrance of the university from security operatives at the LASU main campus in Ojo.
They refused to open the school gate for Fagbohun and the students to gain entry into the premises.
Some students had travelled from neighbouring states to resume activities, as the school management had released the academic timetable for final year students.
The unions are protesting non-payment of the salary increment promised them by the state government over a year ago.
They said other government workers in the state except for tertiary institution in Lagos have received the increment.
