Nigeria's Premier University, The university of Ibadan has been closed down against all odds as a result of the two days of protest by students of the University over poor electricity supply to the institution.
The Instruction to close down was given by the university authority who directed that the institution be closed down for two weeks with immediate effect.
The school authority declared the closure after an emergency Senate meeting held between 3pm and 5pm Tuesday to appraise the situation on ground.
Although details of the meeting were not known at the time of filing this report, a source revealed that the closure has become necessary to abort the indefinite protest by the students and prevent the peaceful protest from turning violent.
The source stated that the school authority would have time to fix some of the problems the students have complained about and ensure that electricity is generated within the campus so that the students will have at least seven hours of uninterrupted electricity daily
The University of Ibadan regret to announce the close down, but believes it is a necessary precaution to prevent any damages by the peaceful protesters if their demands are not meant in time.
