80 days after the Academic Staff Union of Universities commenced the ongoing strike, some students of the university of Benin have gathered in their number to protest the continuous closure of tertiary institutions.
The students barricaded the busy Benin-Lagos Expressway, school gate and Ring Road causing heavy gridlock.
They expressed dissatisfaction over the strike action which, according to them, has killed several students of tertiary universities and rendered some others useless.

The students were sighted at the campus entrance chanting solidarity songs holding placards with inscriptions like ‘FG settle ASUU’, ‘Enough is Enough’, ‘End ASUU strike’
In February, the students had blocked the busy Benin/Lagos highway in solidarity with the members of the ASUU.
Different students groups have recently been reported to protest against the continuous strike action.
