There was mild drama at the Ladoke Akintola University of Technology ( LAUTECH) in Ogbomoso, Oyo State on Monday, as aggrieved students shut the school gates to prevent UTME candidates from writing their examination scheduled for Monday morning.
The gates were reportedly locked by 5am after the student leaders had a meeting insisting that government must fight the crisis in the institution before admitting new students. The
demands include a comprehensive academic calendar, as many complained of having 3sets of 100 level students, including 200 level.
The students also charged the school authorities to fix an appropriate time for commencement of lectures and meet all necessary demands or risk a total lockdown of the institution.
The student leaders hope the protest will convince the federal government to intercede in the ongoing crisis in the institution.
