University of Ibadan shuts down

The Vice Chancellor, University of Ibadan, UI, Professor Abel Idowu Olayinka today ordered all the undergraduate students of the institution to vacate the institution before 6pm today.

Olayinka who responded to the protest staged today said, all the undergraduate students should leave all of residence on or before 6pm today.

He also postponed the first semester exam slated to start tomorrow to Monday July 17, 2017.

He however stated that the order does not affect the academic programme of the post graduate students saying that their lectures and other academic activities continue.

It would be recalled that the university authority tried to appeal to the students to shelve their plan demonstration in the interest of peace.

But the students still went ahead today and staged a protest.

There was heavy military and presence at the university entrance this morning to forestall breakdown of law and order.
