The students said although their school is located in Ogun State, they decided to protest on Ikorodu Road, Lagos because the road is owned by the Federal Government.

The students, who are over 200, are also calling on students in other higher institutions in Lagos to join their cause.

The Academic Staff Union of Polytechnic (ASUP) has been on strike for over two months and academic activities have been grounded with students being forced to sit at home.
