Riot Breaks Out In Lagos State University, Students Stone VC (Photos)

                                         A cross section of students chasing the Vice Chancellor

Lagos State University students today went on the rampage  disrupting the university’s second semester examination, destroying properties in the process and even stoning their University Vice Chancellor Prof. John Obafunwa as he made to escape their wrath.
Trouble started in the university when their VC decided not to open the registration portal for over
2,000 students who were yet to register their second semester courses as exams was to begin Thursday.
According to the students, only 708 were able to register before the portal was shut again leaving,
1292 students to their fate.

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.
They started a riot, destroyed properties in the school and threw sticks and stones at the Vice Chancellor’s convoy as he made to escape through an alternative route beside Conoil Filling station.
All these pictures are from what is happening at the scene right now.
