Heavy gridlock reported as NANS protest at Lagos airport.
Students under the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS), South West zone, on Monday blocked the road leading to the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Ikeja, Lagos, protesting against the ongoing strike by members of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU).
The students who were blocked by security operatives from gaining access to the airport took over the road, preventing traffic flow both inward and outward from the facility.
The students, in their hundreds, demanded an immediate end to the strike which has entered its seventh month, urging the Nigerian government to meet the demands of the striking lecturers to enable them to return to class.
They could be seen singing and dancing on the road, creating gridlock on the busy road.
