ASUU strike: Protesting students lock federal, state secretariats in Plateau

Students from different tertiary institutions under the aegis of National Association of Nigerian Students on Monday locked out federal and state workers in Plateau State.


The angry students were protesting the ongoing nationwide strike by the Academic Staff Union of Universities, myhitjams reports.

The students had converged in front of the National Library located along the ever-busy Yakubu Gowon Way in Jos around 8:am and later moved to the federal secretariat located within Tudun Wada community and locked the gate, preventing the workers from going in while those already inside were trapped in their offices.


Civil servants saidI left my house in the morning to my office at the Federal Secretariat but when I got to the gate, I saw many young men and women with placards singing solidarity songs. I was afraid to go in. When I enquired what was happening, I discovered that they are students.

“They said they would not allow people to pass through the gate. So, I and my other colleagues who also came to work returned home because they locked the secretariat gate and prevented us from having access to our offices.”
