Men of the Lagos State Police Command, Lagos Airport Police Command and students, under the aegis of the National Association of Nigerian Students, may be set for a showdown over the students’ plan to ground the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Ikeja, Lagos today.

The students’ planned mass action is in continuation of their protest against the ongoing industrial action by the Academic Staff Union of Universities.

While the students told Correspondents on Sunday that they will commence the grounding of the nation’s airports starting with that of Lagos on Monday today, police authorities said the students “are free to come out and see what awaits them.”
NAN’S National Taskforce Chairman, Olumide Ojo, disclosed to Correspondents, that the association was aware of the Federal Government’s plan to mobilise the military against its protest.
He said the move would, however, not stop the association’s protest at the Lagos airport.
