UNILAG Bans Students From Driving Heavily-Tinted Vehicles On Campus


The University of Lagos (UNILAG) says it will no longer allow heavily-tinted vehicles into its campus.

According to NAN, Oluwole Familoni, deputy vice-chancellor of research and academics, spoke on Friday at a news conference announcing the varsity’s resumption for the second semester of the 2019/2020 session.

He said that the decision was informed by rising security challenges, especially attacks in institutions of learning.

“We are aware of the disturbing security situation in the country especially as it concerns institutions of higher learning. We are being proactive by taking some necessary steps to protect our students,” the DVC said.

“We are in collaboration with some security agencies around our students for increased presence on campus. We also have our own intelligence that is unknown to anyone.”

Familoni added that UNILAG had requested more security vehicles that would be going around the campus. He said that only students who would meet laid down conditions will be allowed into halls of residence.

The DVC, who also gave a report of UNILAG’s 2019/2020 first semester online teaching and examination, said that such students must have officially allocated and paid bed spaces registered in the halls for the session.

According to him, the institution’s second semester of the 2019/2020 academic session will start on May 9.

“We have made everywhere well lit and have provided CCTV mechanisms. But having said this, I want to state that our students must help themselves by being security conscious at all times,” he said.

“Students must also present proof of allocation such as Hall Pass or Confirmation Slip for the 2019/2020 Session, as well as submit a signed copy of the indemnity form.

“They are to also present a bottle of sanitizer (minimum of 500ml), present at least 20 facemasks, wear the facemasks into and out of hostels at all times, and conform to all COVID-19 protocols.

“They must not be caught promoting overcrowding in rooms beyond their carrying capacity. In order words, squatters and floaters are no longer tolerated.

“Students are allowed to bring and register with hall staff, personal mattresses, lockers, and table/wall fans that meet hall specifications.

“Students who meet all these above conditions can move into the hostels from Sunday, May 9, and be willing to obey all extant rules and regulations with associated penalties for hostel residency.’’
