Nine months after the closure of Polytechnics in the counry due to strike action by the Academic Staff Union,  Polytechnic students are still at home.
Yesterday morning, students from various polytechnics and colleges of education took to the streets to peacefully  protest the lingering strike embarked upon by Academic Unions in polytechnics that has left the tertiary institutions closed for 9 months plus.
Using placard, the students demanded that the federal government should implement the 2009 ASUP agreement and end the HND/BSC dichotomy.




According to Sahara Reporters present to capture the protest, a team of anti-riot police brutally attacked the students. They tear-gassed and assaulted the protesters, as well as arrested more than 100 students and a Sahara TV reporter.
“The arrested students accused the police of also using tear gas on them after they were herded into prison vehicles known as Black Maria.” reports the news organization.
The issue with Police reportedly started as soon as the protesters moved from Yaba College of Technology in the Yaba area of Lagos towards Lagos Island.
