January 23, 2014 – LASU Riot: Lagos State University Students Stoned VC John Obafunwa Over Portal Closure

The situation at Lagos State University right now is very tense as angry students took to the campus destroying multi-million naira properties.

Some even stoned the school’s VC, Professor John Obafunwa as he ran for safety.

The riot has disrupted LASU’s 2nd semester exam.

What Caused LASU Riots

According to reports from Lagos, the Vice Chancellor prevented over 1290 students who are yet to register for their 2nd semester courses from gaining access to the registration portal as examination was to commence today.

Only 708 students out of the 2000 were able to successfully register before the registration portal was shut down leaving over 1290 stranded.

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.

The student started a violent riot and destroyed most of the school’s properties. Stones and sticks were thrown at the VC’s convoy as he ran away from the school premises through an alternative route beside Conoil Gas station.

Below are the pictures from the riot.

    The atitude of lecturers and the whole administrative body is nothing to be reckon with, the whole administrative body is always not serious and heartless bunch of people only God knows what is wrong with lasu. I am a part time student of the school and i know what am talking about, thank God for fasola who has finally taking steps to scrab anex studies of the school, the younger generations would have been a victim of the bush animals. If the VC had his son among the students would he have made that kind of statement?

    When the president doesn’t care for educational funding that costs students +3 months @ home,when the minister of education cannot update the 17th century knowledge still taught in nigeria….go abroad and tell a science student there are only three states of matter…you would be laughed at!… When a doctor cannot tell you if you need to take an x-ray to evaluate a fracture that requires an artificial shunt,when the minister of health and governors give crutches to lame people without prosthetics or physical training,when people with revolutionary ideas that can and will transform the country are left in the dark,when a campaign is held by someone who promises every and anything but does not explain how it will be done or performed that the current person in charge hasn’t done(that is what a campaign is,you tell everyone how what you are saying can be done,not promises)can’t you all see we need to have a new revolution… one were knowledge is updated and is presented in a multitude of ways that no one wouldn’t understand…and an industry that feeds and cares for workers,a law that prohibits large vehicles on roads that are busy on workdays…a law that requires people to have bus passes to use bus transports freely for students and or workers at cheap pprices….a law that makes sure there are armed personnel in those buses that secures the passengers…a law that makes sure data and educational centres are automated and thereby free for children who are poor…powered by a barrage of eco-friendly sources….an infrastrucure that opens up cases on international ban on trding devices like paypal to nigerians and makes an organization where people who want an account are recorded and prosecuted if found to be engaging in illegal activities…a biometric system for the country to monitor over or under-population.. and many more…but alas the people are frail and can be told when and how to protest,what and not what to believe,choose what to and not have relationships with,what questions to ask and not ask…can’t you all see we are the sheep in an ever entangled complicated realm of injustice and corruption..
