Protesting students of the Lagos State University, LASU, Tuesday shut down traffic along he Lagos-Abeokuta Expressway to protest the hike in tuition fees.
The students who demanded the Lagos state government to immediately revert the fee to N48,500 stopped vehicular movement for hours on the ever busy expressway.
