NANS protest along Murtala Airport, Lagos, leaves travelers stranded

National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) has blocked roads leading to the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Ikeja, Lagos.

The mass action is in continuation of their protest against the ongoing industrial action by the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU.

The protesting students defied heavy downpour and caused gridlock on the road leading to the airport leaving many travelers stranded.

It was gathered that operatives from the Lagos State Police Command, RRS operatives, Lagos Airport Police Command and other security agencies are on ground.

The students carried placards chanting Aluta songs to register their displeasure over the actions of the Federal Government.
