The protesters, under the umbrella of the Senior Staff Association of Nigeria (SSANU) blocked the gate of the university premises as early as 6.30am, protesting against the inefficiency of the current management of the university.

According to Information Nigeria, placards at the gate of the Alabata Main Campus read “EFCC do your work”, “Bring back our suspended members”, “Oyewole be honest with workers”. Looking at the placards carried by the protesters, their grudges against the current management also include corruption and possibly embezzlement.

The leader of the protest, Fasunwo Olurotimi, the chairman of SSANU, said "we shall not wait till corruption eats FUNAAB. We shall fight against it with all the resources at our disposal”.

The University has had a turbulent history in recent times of grievances coming from different quarters.

In August, student protests led to the killing of one student.

School officials were also questioned by the EFCC last month.
