Photos: Police Disrupts ASUP Protest In Abuja

Academic Staff Union of Polytechnics (ASUP) and Colleges of Education Academic Staff Union (COEASU) after staying at home for ten months, decided to stage a protest today at the Federal Secretariat in Abuja. Their protest however was disrupted when the lecturers and students who gathered in front of the Secretariat, were dispersed by gun-wielding policemen who later fired teargas at them for defying their instruction not to move beyond the premises of the Federal Secretariat.

The Minister of Labour, Mr Emeka Wogu, who addressed the lecturers before they were dispersed, promised to address the issues raised by them and said there would be an end to the on-going strike. More pictures from the protest after the cut. More photos after the cut.
