Students under the aegis of Nigerian
Education Rights Coalition and Coalition
Against Commercialization of Education in
Nigeria today embarked on street protests in
Lagos that has brought traffic to a standstill
on on Lagos main road, Ikorodu road.
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.
Policemen are seen trying to break up the
protest but the students have so far stood
their ground and proceeded peacefully in
defiance of the police.
