UNILAG Postpones Exams Over Bedbug Issues

Following the incessant trouble bedeviling the
University of Lagos (UNILAG), the institution has
decided to  postponed its forthcoming examinations
slated for October 12 to 19.

It would be recalled that Hundreds of students of the
University of Lagos yesterday staged a protest against bed bug, which they said invaded their campus hostels.

The protest started from Marire Hall to New Hall comprising Sodeinde Hall, Eni Njoku,Makama Bida
Hall, Madam Tinubu Hall, Fagunwa Hall.

Deputy Registrar (Information) Mr Olagoke Oke who
promulgated this to news men said that the
institution would change the bed bug infested mattresses and furniture, which led to the protest
and fumigate the hostels.

He said: “We cannot fumigate when students are on
campus so we would wait for them to go on break
before that. But plans are at an advanced stage to
procure new mattresses for all the hostels. It is not
just one mattress we are buying, but many, so it
would take some processes and negotiations.  The
university is giving the students a one-week
postponement of their examinations also.”

Students Union President Abiodun Martins urged
management to go beyond yearly fumigation after
procuring the mattresses.
Clerk of parliament, Adeonipekun Adeyanju said

“Management has agreed to buy new mattresses
and change the bunks in the hostels and also buy a
covering for the mattresses to prevent them from
easy harm and dirt. However, I would advise them
to fumigate every week once they start. Those
things can hide anywhere and they have already
laid eggs in hidden corners. So they can fumigate
every week for a period of one month or even more
to be sure they are all gone.”

A tour on Tuesday showed that the halls of residence
are in good shape.
