UNILAG students protest renaming of institution after MKO Abiola

Students of the University of Lagos on Tuesday morning organised a protest against the renaming of the institution after the late acclaimed winner of the June 12, 1993 presidential election, Chief MKO Abiola.
The students began gathering in groups in the main campus at Akoka, Lagos immediately after President Jonathan announced the decision in his Democracy Day 2012 speech to the nation.
They subsequently trooped out of their hostels chanting protests songs and denouncing the change of the institution’s name.
They also blocked access to the institution and disrupted traffic on University of Lagos Road and St. Finbarrs’ College Road
