Students of the Ladoke Akintola University of Technology ( LAUTECH), Ogbomoso have shut the gates of the institution against UTME candidates scheduled to write their examination on Monday morning. The gates were locked after students leaders held a congress by 5am and resolved that the school will be lockdown and no Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) examination will hold until their demands are met.
The demands include, a comprehensive academic calendar, commencement of lectures and a permanent resolution of the crisis in the institution. Unless the demands are met, the student leaders said they will continue to protest and ensure a total lockdown of the institution.
The student leaders said the aim of the lock down is to get the attention of the federal government on the plight of the institution.
