This was made known in a statement titled "ASUU strike: Union leaders go underground" made by ASUU, University of Ibadan (UI) chapter, signed by Dr Olusegun Ajiboye. According to the claims, union leaders are being tailed by unknown elements suspected to be security agents involved by the Federal Government.
The extract from the statement reads as follows:
"Apart from the issue of finance (referring to withdrawn salaries) ASUU leaders are now being trailed all over the place. Majority of our union leaders have now gone underground while many have their telephone lines bugged. Some are now living in fear for their lives.
"The position of ASUU is that Nigeria is a democratic country and citizens are guaranteed freedom of association. Members of the union are apprehensive for the lives of their leaders. We urge the government to leave our leaders alone."
Ajiboye urged the Federal Government to focus on implementing the 2009 agreement, which was reached with the Union.

He also asked Inspector Mohammed Abubakar, General of Police,  to take care of the lives of ASUU leaders.
