OAU Shuts Down Indefinitely

By Onyekpe Derrick 

The school management has ordered the closure of the school and for all students to vacate the hostels latest 12noon 2nd of October.

This was revealed in a press release after almost 12 hours since the beginning of the protest that shook the grounds of Ile Ife as a result of the death of Adesina Aishat a final year student of the  Department of Foreign Languages. 

In the press release,  the School’s PRO, Abiodun Olanrewaju wrote;
"The Management condemns in strong terms the continuous and uncontrolled protests by the students culminating in unbridled brigandage, blocking the Ife/Ibadan and Ife/Ede highways and other adjoining roads that could be used as alternative routes, and engaging in other acts that are detrimental to their health and the safety of the generality of the people". 

Subsequently, the swearing-in of the newly elected SUG has also been put on hold till the proper investigation is carried out.
