Members of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) and Non-Academic Staff Union of Universities (NASU) on Monday stopped the Vice-Chancellor of the Lagos State Univeristy (LASU), Prof Olanrewaju Fagboun and students from gaining access to premises.

AFNews reports that the action was as a result of protest by the union members over non-payment of increment in salaries promised by the Lagos State Government.

The groups had vowed to frustrate any plan to resume if their demands were not met.
