The Deputy Vice-Chancellor Research and Academics, Prof. Oluwole Familoni has said that the University of Lagos (UNILAG) will no longer grant access to "heavily tinted vehicles" as students prepare to resume. 

Familoni, at a news conference on Friday, disclosed that the decision was informed by rising security challenges, especially in learning institutions. 

"We are aware of the disturbing security situation in the country especially as it concerns institutions of higher learning. 

"We are being proactive by taking some necessary steps to protect our students," the professor said.  

He further said that UNILAG had requested for more security patrol vehicles round the campus.

"We are in collaboration with some security agencies around our students for increased presence on campus.

"But having said this, I want to state that our students must help themselves by being security conscious at all times," he said.  

The official added that the University also prayed for divine protection.

According to Prof. Familoni, the semester will start on May 9 and only students who meet the conditions will be allowed in to the halls of residence. 

He included that such students must have officially allocated and paid for bedspaces in their respective halls.
