Students of the Federal University of Technology Akure, FUTA on Wednesday staged a protest over the lingering ASUU Strike, calling on the federal goverment to accede to the demands of their lecturers.
The students who trooped out in their numbers blocked the popular Akure-Ilesha highway, chanting solidarity songs.
The situation led to a gridlock for hours as motorists got stranded while commuters trekked the long road which had no alternative access.
Speaking on behalf of the protesting students, Mr Odunayo Ayodele said their future was being mortgaged by the incessant ASUU Strike, a situation which they could no longer Condone.
Mr Ayodele said the protest would continue until the Federal government acceded to the demands of the lecturers so the students could return to schools.
