The management of Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU), Ile Ife, Osun State, Tuesday night shut the institution indefinitely following continued students protest on the campus of the institution.

It will be recalled that the students had on Monday held a peaceful protest at the entrance of the institution over poor condition of their hall 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.
