Students unrest: Authority closes OAU

OAU, Ife

The senate of the Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU), Ile-Ife, Osun State, have closed the institution after 48 hours of students unrest.

The institution was shut down on Tuesday after an emergency meeting of Senate.

The students started the protest on Monday over epileptic power supply, unavailability of portable water supply in their halls of residence and alleged poor funding of education in Nigeria.

The protest prevented free flow of traffic into and out of the campus.

Mr Biodun Olanrewaju, the Univeristy’s Public Relations Officer, confirmed the closure.

He said that the date of resumption would be announced as and when due.

He, however, said that the convocation slated for next week would still hold.
