The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) and the Non-Academic Staff Union of Universities (NASU) have today blocked the main entrance of the Lagos State University (LASU) over alleged non- payment of the minimum wage.

The protesting members  prevented both students and lecturers from gaining entry into the campus.

They claimed that an increment in their salaries was promised by the Lagos State government more than a year ago and that the promise was yet to be fulfilled.

Those locked out of the school include the Vice-Chancellor of the University, Professor Olanrewaju Fagbohun.

The Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu had announced that tertiary institutions in the state will be reopened today, September 14, 2020, after bein shut for six months due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
