COVID-19: UNILAG Asks Students To Vacate Hostels




The Senate of the University of Lagos (UNILAG), Akoka, has mandated the institution’s management to ask all students to vacate hostels “with immediate effect.”


A member of the Senate, who was part of the meeting but does not want to be quoted, claiming not to be authorised to do so, told the PREMIUM TIMES that the decision was unavoidable following the rising cases of coronavirus infection on the campus.

“The Senate at its meeting held today considered the situation of third wave of COVID-19 in Lagos State and its implications for the university. The Senate resolved that all students should vacate the halls of residence immediately,” the source said.
