The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) and the Non-Academic Staff Union of Universities (NASU) are currently laying siege to the Lagos State University (LASU) over the payment of the minimum wage.
Members of the Union gathered at the entrance of the University insisting that no one would be allowed into the institution until their demands are met by the state government.
Vice-Chancellor of the University, Professor Olanrewaju Fagboun was also among the people locked out.
All attempt by the Vice-Chancellor to dialogue with NLC, ASUU, NASU was not successful, as they insist that they would not bulge until their demands are met.
They claimed that an increment in their salaries was promised by the Lagos State government more than a year ago and the promise was yet to be fulfilled.
The Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu two weeks earlier announced that tertiary institutions in the state will be reopened today, September 14, 2020, after been shut for six months due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
