University of Ibadan Closed Down Indefinitely

         U.I closed indeterminately.
The management of University of Ibadan (UI) has announced the closing down of the institution following the on-going mass protest by students.

The announcement was made by the Vice Chancellor, Prof. Idowu Olayinka on Tuesday on Diamond FM, the varsity’s radio station. In the brief announcement, the students were told to vacate the halls of residence and the university before 4pm.

The students are protesting over the rustication of one Michael Tunji-Ekpeti, a 500-level Petroleum Engineering student, who was said to have participated in a mass protest last semester when his hostel, Independence Hall, had no electricity and water supply for two weeks.
The students were said to have been incensed because he was singled out in the mass protest.
Meanwhile, some student leaders have gone round the halls of residence to dismiss as a mere rumour the announcement made by the university management
