Lagos State University students went on the rampage  today.
They disrupted
the university’s second semester examination, destroying properties in
the process and even stoning their University Vice Chancellor Prof. John
Obafunwa as he made to escape their wrath.
 According to reports, the riot started when their VC decided not to open the registration portal for over
2,000 students who were yet to register their second semester courses as exams was to begin Thursday.

 

According to the students, only 708 were able to register before the portal was shut again leaving,
1292 students to their fate.

When the students union government went to plead on behalf of the
students, the VC was reported as saying those yet to register are
insignificant and would automatically have to carry the session over, a
statement which infuriated the students and they decided to take laws
into their hands.
 
They started a riot, destroyed properties in the school and threw sticks
and stones at the Vice Chancellor’s convoy as he made to escape through
an alternative route beside Conoil Filling station.
