The present 100 level students had paid N120,000 for indigenes of Oyo and Ogun states and N150,000 for non-indigenes as part of the resolution of the institution after the university strike that lasted for months.
However, on Monday, the institution in a mail sent to all students said indigenes are now to pay N200,000 while non-indigenes are to pay N250,000 for the new session which will commence on October 29.
However, as early as 6:30 a.m. this morning students locked the institution’s campus gates in Osogbo and Ogbomoso and are now protesting with the hashtag, #OccupyLautech.
The closure has disrupted the flow of vehicles and also grounded day to day activities in the school.
The students have vowed never to accept this new increase, asking where their parents will get the money from.
