Police in Dakar deployed tear gas as students protested at Cheikh Anta Diop University (UCAD) on Thursday, May 2. Students threw projectiles at security forces and blocked roads in the Fann district amid demonstrations to denounce delayed scholarship payments.
A heightened security presence and localized disruptions are likely over the coming hours. Further clashes between protesters and police cannot be ruled out as the student strike continues.
Individuals in Dakar are advised to monitor the situation, anticipate public demonstrations and localized transportation disruptions, and avoid all public demonstrations as a precaution.
