Comrade wole Odewumi told Journalists in his office that "I am going to call on other Union leaders on campus to charge the vice Chancellor on what to do on the recent flood gate".

Mr Odewumi added that the whole blame of the incident is on the landlords who think the "Student-town-inversion" is an avenue for them for fast profiteering means, giving houses in marshy land to students.

Wole Odewumi' also told Journalists that all efforts will be put on deck to communicate to the Two Kings around the university community (Ife and Modakeke) to surmount their subjects(landlords).

One the victim of the flood, Deborah by name who is a female Student of obafemi awolowo university ile ife found at the flood scene yesterday, while speaking our correspondent around Oke ola, line 1 of modakeke said " this will be the second time this same flood will whisk this apartment after we have called on the landlord through the caretaker for proper drainage"

Major areas like Mayfair, Lagere, Ibadan road and Asherifa are popular areas where Obafemi Awolowo UNIVERSITY Students reside after the the decongestion process by the school Management Of the Halls of residence.


"However, the flood was caused by the lack of a good drainage system as almost all the government road here in Ife did not have a good drainage and particularly all the affected areas" Akintola Isaac commented
