Tension mounted on Wednesday as lecturers at the University of Lagos, Akoka, protested against the Pro-Chancellor and Chairman of the Governing Council, Dr Wale Babalakin.
The lecturers, who marched round the school, gathered under the aegis of the Academic Staff Union of Universities, UNILAG branch.
The placard-carrying protesters, who chanted slogans against the pro-chancellor, called for his removal.
The protest followed a week of renewed clash between the varsity management led by the Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Toyin Ogundipe, and the governing council.
Ogundipe had announced that 13,489 graduating students would be conferred with degrees, diplomas and certificates from March 9 to 13.
However, the National Universities Commission, in a memo, called for the suspension of the event. (Text courtesy Punch)
