However, it was gathered that the unions involved in the protest included the Academic Staff Union of Universities, the Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities, Non-Academic Staff Union, and the National Association of Academic Technologists.

The disgruntled members were protesting over non-payment of the salary increment promised them by the Lagos State Government over a year ago. Do they claim? other government workers have received the increment but all the tertiary institutions in Lagos State were yet to be included.

All efforts by the Vice-Chancellor to dialogue with NLC, ASUU, and NASU members proved abortive, as they contended that no one will be allowed into the university premises until their demands are met by the state government.

Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu two weeks earlier disclosed that tertiary institutions in the state will be reopened today, September 14, 2020, after being shut for six months due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
