Students of the Ladoke Akintola University Technology, LAUTECH, Ogbomoso on Thursday morning defied the rain in Osogbo to continue the protest against stoppage of funding the institution and non-payment of their lecturers and other staff for the past eight months.
According to PUNCH, hundreds of students of the institution stormed the State Secretariat but later converged at Olaiya Junction and blocked the roads causing heavy traffic snarl.
The students, who marched under the rain sang anti government songs and vowed to continue with the protest until the governors of Oyo and Osun States accede to their demands.
The protest is coinciding with the climax of activities marking the 60th birthday of Governor Rajf Aregbesola.
Security personnel prevented the students from blocking the entrance to the Government House but the students gathered in front of Laro High School close to the Government House and continued with their protest.
