LASU OFFICIAL BULLETIN_11TH OF APRIL,2019.

UNIVERSITY AUTHORITIES CAUTION ON DESTRUCTION OF THE ENVIRONMENT

The authorities of Lagos State University hereby strongly warn members of the University Community, Staff, Students and others to henceforth desist from degredation and destruction of the University’s environment, especially, the land, spread across the campuses, Ojo, Ikeja, Epe and Badagry.
This warning became expedient because the authorities have noticed with utmost dismay untoward activities of some individuals in the habit of digging the land without any recourse to nature and permission from the appropriate quarters saddled with such responsibility.
Therfore, such activity is illegal and those found culpable will henceforth be dealt with if they don’t take permission in the course of carrying out such activity.
