As the battle continues over the seat of Vice Chancellor in University of Lagos, UNILAG, between Professors Oluwatoyin Ogundipe, Omololu Soyombo and the university council, the two claimants to the office of the VC were conspicuously missing at the Senate Building office of the Vice-Chancellor of the institution today.
At the Senate Building, security men, from the Department of State Service, DSS, were positioned with the university security personnel to screen and even prevent people from entering the building.
Prior to this moment, in a call with Soyombo last week, he said he had resumed office since Wednesday last week and only works from the Senate Building.
“Yes, I have resumed as the Acting Vice-Chancellor and I am working as such,” he said.
When asked to schedule a meeting with newsmen, he said he would soon meet with the press and relate officially with others too.
But when newsmen arrived at his office in the Department of Sociology, Faculty of Social Sciences, he was said to be at a meeting.
Later, a man, who identified himself as Odetola Philip, informed newsmen that Soyombo would meet the press on Wednesday as he is too busy to see anybody.
For Ogundipe, it was gathered that he was out of town to make contact with some people who could help him out.
