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.
