The University of Lagos (UNILAG) said on Friday that heavily tinted vehicles will no longer be granted access to its campus over fears of insecurity as students of the institution resume physical classes on May 9, 2021.
This was disclosed by the Deputy Vice-Chancellor, Research and Academics, Prof. Oluwole Familoni at a press conference on Friday, adding that the decision was informed by rising security challenges, especially attacks on institutions of learning.
He said: “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,” the official said.
According to Familoni, UNILAG had asked for more security vehicles and motorised security that would be going around 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 said.
