    The management of the University of Lagos has lifted the suspension clause placed on one Olorunfemi Adeyeye, a student of the Department of Building who was suspended in 2016 by the school authorities, for leading a protest.

    Adeyeye, alongside some students’ union leaders, was suspended for participating in a protest on April 6 and 8, 2016, which eventually led to the closure of the institution and the indefinite suspension of the students’ union activities.

    The student had also criticized the leadership of the institution in a Facebook post he titled ”The Senate of the University of Lagos; a Conglomeration of Academic Ignorami”. In the post, Adeyeye called out the school management over the infrastructural decay and their inability to properly manage conflicts as “democrats”.

    The school authorities also accused Adeyeye of leading a team tagged ‘Save Unilag Coalition’ comprising of individuals from the National Association of Nigerian Students into the school campus to disrupt the activities of the office of the Dean of Student Affairs on March 31, 2016.
