The meeting was presided over by its Pro-Chancellor and Chairman of Council, Dr Wale Babalakin (SAN).

Recall that the council chairman, Babalakin and the UNILAG Vice-Chancellor, Prof Toyin Ogundipe, have been at loggerheads over some issues relating to the running of the school.

The face-off led to the last-minute suspension of this year’s graduation ceremonies of the school.

Based on the development, ASUU, UNILAG chapter under the leadership of Dr Dele Ashiru, held a Congress where Babalakin was declared unwelcomed on campus.

When the Council attempted to hold a meeting a few weeks ago, ASUU also fixed its congress for the foyer of the Council Chambers and the Council called off it’s meeting due to that.

Recounting his experience while in detention, Olusola said;

 “There was no social distancing in detention. I guess the people in the cells are exceptional. It is like COVID-19 doesn’t infect them and this is despite the fact that new suspects are brought in every day without testing.

“However, we had an incident just once. There was a Chinese man who was a gold miner who fell ill. He was taken to a hospital and tested positive for COVID-19, so he was hurriedly released.

“He was in the Force Intelligence Bureau department so only the suspects in that cell were tested. We were all at risk of getting infected with COVID-19.

“It wasn’t easy. I spent 82 days in detention, and I was transferred to three different cells. I wore the same clothes for 82 days.”

The student who expressed disappointment that he was arrested despite being one of Goodluck Jonathan’s biggest supporters, added;

“The funny thing is that I even tweeted good things about Goodluck Jonathan a few weeks before my arrest. I said Jonathan’s administration was better than that of the current president. So, I was shocked but this is Nigeria.”

When asked if he was still a fan of Jonathan, Olusola jokingly said “May God help us.”

No matter how much you water a dead plant, it wont produce flowers. Stop spending money on a girl because you want her to love you. That is not how love grows.
