Students of the University of Benin (UNIBEN) have taken to the streets to protest the ongoing strike by Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), which entered 80th day.
The Nation learnt students of the institution blocked the ever-busy Benin-Lagos Expressway, school gate and Ring Road.
The protest caused gridlock on the highway for hours, forcing many motorists to avoid the route while those going into the state capital had to divert to other roads.
The students, in their hundreds, were seen at the campus entrance chanting solidarity songs holding placards with inscriptions like ‘FG settle ASUU’, ‘Enough is Enough’, ‘End ASUU strike’
The students also defied the heavy downpour.
The Nation recalls in February, the students had blocked the busy Benin/Lagos highway in solidarity with the members of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU).
