COVID-19: UNILAG orders students to vacate hostels

 



The management of the University of Lagos (UNILAG) has ordered students to vacate its campus.

The varsity announced the development in a statement on Wednesday.

On Tuesday, panic broke out at the institution after it recorded an increase in the number of persons within the varsity community with symptoms of COVID-19 infection.

This had prompted Oluwatoyin Ogundipe, the vice-chancellor, to summon an emergency meeting of the school’s senate.

In the statement, the university senate directed that all students vacate the halls of residence by 12:00 pm on Thursday.

“To check the spread of Covid-19 on campus, the university senate has directed that all students vacate the halls of residence latest by 12.00 noon on Thursday 15 July 2021,” the statement read.

“No access will be granted to any student after 12.00 noon on 15 July.
