The Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU), Ile Ife, Osun State, has been closed down indefinitely, following continued protests by students.

The students were protesting alleged poor living condition in their halls of residence.

However, the university’s Public Relations Officer, Abiodun Olanrewaju, refuted the claim that the institution had been shut down.

He said the authorities only gave the students a mid-semester break.

For two days that the protest lasted, many students and workers were stranded as there was heavy traffic at the institution’s main gate.

According to the students, epileptic power and poor water supply had made the campus not conducive for learning. (The Nation)
