“The #Nigerian state, particularly @PoliceNG, is very good at suppressing protests involving people that have no weapons. But when it comes to confronting armed groups, they don’t seem to be as forceful and ‘courageous’.”

Hundeyin then replied:

“I hope you one day get hold up in traffic cause by protest & miss your flight/appointment/interview. Ambulances too get stuck. I would love to hear you castigate the police for allowing some people hold an entire road or area to ransom. Fortunately for you, we won’t allow it.”

Hundeyin added in another tweet:

“Protest by all means. It’s very fine. Just don’t step on other people’s right to freedom of movement. Don’t block the roads. Move in an orderly procession. Students protested PEACEFULLY at UNILAG recently. We were on ground and never interfered.”

The Asuu Strike Protest by Nigerian students is still very much ongoing, with activities already going on at Apapa.

In 2022, ASUU declared a one-month strike, beginning February 14, 2022. Some of the lecturer’s demands include the revitalisation of public universities, earned allowance, improved funding of state universities, and promotion arrears.

Since then till now, students are not back to class, due to the back and forth between Asuu and the government, Hence the Protest
