The four staff unions at Lagos State University, have locked out their Vice-Chancellor, Olanrewaju Fagboun, and students as the university resume today after the coronavirus break.
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.
At 7 am, members of the unions stood at the gate and prevented members of staff from gaining entry into the University.
They are protesting for the non-payment of the salary increment promised them by the Lagos State Government over a year ago.
Lagos State workers had received the increment but all the tertiary institutions in Lagos State were yet to be included.
