Concerned individuals as well as other activists have indicated interest in a protest march at the University of Lagos (UNILAG) today, Friday, March 31, 2017.
The planned protest is as a result of the alleged suspension of a visually impaired student, Lawrence Success, who was rusticated for two semesters by the institution.
The student was rusticated for two semesters over an “illegal protest”, his UNILAG online portal reportedly shows, Newsroom reports.
The “illegal” protest reportedly took place in 2015 during which students complained about the plague of bed bugs in their hostels.
UNILAG had rusticated 11 other students for criticising the school management. One of them, Femi Adeyeye, said he’s ready to die during the demonstration.
“Let me state this here that it is a struggle for comrades and those that who are tired of this incessant rubbish,” Adeyeye said.
“It is not a movement where you look at the eyeballs of your friend or you wait for you friend or SUG President to move before you move,” he said.
