The management of Adekunle Ajasin University, Akungba-Akoko, AAUA, has ordered the indefinite closure of the institution following the fatal road accident which happened on Saturday, claiming lives of some students of the institution.

It was reported that at least 9 persons died when a Dangote truck loaded with bags of cement crushed passersby, students and traders before ramming into shops opposite the university after a break failure.

According to Premium Times, the move by the institution to order the closure of the school was due to tension rising among students and indigenes, alleging that the government and the institution did not take their lives seriously.

Further to our circular of Saturday 23rd January, 2021 and the attendant protest by students on Sunday, 24th January, 2021, the Acting Vice Chancellor, Adekunle Ajasin University, Akungba Akoko, Prof Olugbenga Ige, on behalf of Senate, has directed that the University be closed with immediate effect until further notice.”

“All students are therefore advised to vacate the campus latest by 6pm today, Sunday 24th January, 2021
