On Monday, members of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) and the Non-Academic Staff Union of Universities (NASU) blocked the Vice-Chancellor of the Lagos State University (LASU), Prof. Olanrewaju Fagboun and the students from accessing the premises.
The groups had vowed to frustrate any plan to resume if their demands were not met.
The drama started as early as 7 am as union members took over the entrance of the university campus at Ojo from security personnel and turned back both human and vehicular movements from going in and out of the LASU premises.
All entreaties by the vice-chancellor to prevail on the protesters was not heeded.
Students in 300 and 400 levels were to resume Monday, with other members of staff that had been on lockdown as a result of ravaging COVID-19 pandemic.
