Heavy presence of security operatives has impeded vehicular movements towards the protest venue. The security operatives, including Police, Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps and others are at the venue to prevent breach or attack on the protesters by thugs.

ASUU commenced its ongoing strike on February 14, shutting  all public universities after the FG failed to meet some demands of the union.
