Ajasin varsity closes indefinitely over student’s death
Following a violent protest weekend over the death of a second-year student of the Department of Economics, authorities of Adekunle Ajasin University Akungba, Akoko, Ondo State have shut the institution indefinitely.
The late student, Ojo Afolabi, who was also a commercial motorcycle rider, reportedly met his demise after being hit by a commercial vehicle along Owo-Ikare Expressway on Friday night.
A statement yesterday by the Acting Registrar, Sunday Ayeerun, said ongoing examinations had been suspended while students were to leave the campus immediately.
It added that students would be informed of a new resumption date in due course.
Ayeerun noted that management had set up a panel on the incident with a view to forestalling future occurrences.
The Guardian learnt that Ojo gave up the ghost while being rushed in the school ambulance to the Federal Medical Centre, Owo.
