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.
