As of the filing of this report, vehicular movements have been disrupted and business activities around the area have been shut down over fear of attack.

Recall that the NLC had announced a protest to force the Federal Government and ASUU to resolve their issues and suspend the lingering strike.

The demands are the release of revitalisation funds for universities, renegotiation of the 2009 FGN/ASUU agreement, release of earned allowances for university lecturers, and deployment of the University Transparency and Accountability Solution platform for the payment of salaries and allowances of university lecturers.
