The latest news reaching us is that students under the aegis of Nigerian Education Rights Coalition and Coalition Against Commercialization of Education in Nigeria today embarked on street protests in Lagos State. The protest brought traffic to a standstill on Lagos main road, Ikorodu.
The protest which started with a handful of students protesting against Nigerian government insensitivity to ongoing strike by university and polytechnic teachers has steadily grown in the last hour.
Security Operatives were seen trying to break up the protest but the students have so far stood their ground and proceeded peacefully in defiance of the police.
Since the Federal Government and the Academic Staff Union of University and Polytechnics are not ready to call of the strike, the students have taken the laws into their hands.
