The University confirmed the claim as rumour through a statement signed by the Coordinator, Centre for Information, Press and Public Relations, LASU, Mr Ademola Adekoya.

“ It has come to the attention of the Lagos State University Management of the malicious and rumour going around the social media that the Vice-Chancellor, Prof.Olanrewaju Fagbohun, has said that students of the University will commence their first-semester examination on September 28, 2020," it read.

“Members of the University Community (staff and students) and the general public are hereby informed that there is no iota of truth in the information as it did not emanate from the University and are advised to disregard such fake notices", the statement read.
