Adekunle Ajasin University

The management of the Adekunle Ajasin University, Akungba-Akoko, Ondo State, on Sunday ordered the indefinite closure of the university following the killing of some students of the institution in a ghastly auto accident near its main gate.

A cement-laden truck belonging to Dangote Group had on Saturday rammed into shops opposite the university main gate at Akoko South West local government area of the state and killed students and residents of the community.

The management ordered the closure of the institution after the students violently protested the killing of their colleagues in the accident.

The university’s Registrar, Opeoluwa Akinfemiwa, who announced the closure of the institution in a circular, directed the students to vacate the campus immediately.
