These students reported to have been sent out of their respective rooms with no provision of where they'd stay until the completion of the renovation.

While Speaking with OAU Peeps News Agency, one of the Occupants, he said:
"We were told about 2 Weeks ago that they want to renovate the hostel. Last week Friday, they asked us to pack our things and we did. They told us to squat with our friends but it made them inconvenient so we left to relax in our various rooms on saturday. Then the Hall warden came to harass us"

After more than three months of No entry by male visitors into the popular female Maintenance Halls of Residence, the OAU security unit has made an official statement limiting the visitor's movement.

This was made known to the public through a circular released by the security department of the University and obtained by OAU Peeps News Agency.  It was made known in the circular that movement of male visitors into maintenance halls is now limited to 12 o'clock noon and 8 o'clock pm.

The Security Unit further explained that the limit was given  due to the recent security challenges faced by the halls of residence, and also to curb the likely effect of neighbouring security breach and spillover that might occur.

The circular was concluded by warning defaulters of the new set rule. It reads "any defaulter will be regarded as violating security directives and will be treated accordingly".
