The management of the University of Ibadan (UI) Tuesday evening shutdown the institution indefinitely and ordered the students to vacate the campus with immediate effect.
This development came after students of the institution staged a protest over management’s victimization of a student who took part in a recent protest by the students as well as poor power and water supply in the school.
A circular issued by the Registrar of the school, Dr O.I. Olukoya, Tuesday evening said the management, in order to safeguard lives and properties had decided that the school should be shut indefinitely and that students should vacate the campus immediately.
The circular titled “Disturbance of peace and threat to lives and property on campus by some students of the University of Ibadan and other students” ask students to comply with the directive till further notice.
