The University of Lagos (UNILAG) has announced that it will no longer allow heavily-tinted vehicles on its campus.
This was made known by the Deputy Vice-Chancellor Research and Academics of the University of Lagos, Prof. Oluwole Familoni, at a news conference Friday to announce UNILAG’S resumption for the second semester of the 2019/2020 academic session.
He stated that the decision was made to protect UNILAG against the spate of kidnapping and incessant attacks on institutions of learning ravaging the country.
“We are aware of the disturbing security situation in the country especially as it concerns institutions of higher learning.
“We are being proactive by taking some necessary steps to protect our students.
“We are in collaboration with some security agencies around our students for increased presence on campus.
“We also have our own intelligence that is unknown to anyone,” he said.
He disclosed that UNILAG had asked for more security vehicles and motorised security that would constantly patrol the campus.
“We have made everywhere well lit and have provided CCTV mechanisms.
“But having said this, I want to state that our students must help themselves by being security conscious at all times,” he added.
According to him, UNILAG’s second semester of the 2019/2020 academic session will start on May 9, adding that only students who would meet laid down conditions will be allowed into the halls.
He added that the measures were aimed at avoiding overcrowding to curb COVID-19 spread.
