Following student protests over Miss Adesina’s murder, the university administration ordered the campus to be closed indefinitely on October 1.

The university’s public relations officer, Abiodun Olanrewaju, issued a statement saying that the administration “understands the pain at the loss of the student, but will not allow the students’ ongoing and uncontrolled protest.”

The Management recognizes the pain felt by the community as a result of this early death, and sympathizes with the parents, friends, colleagues, and all university students on this tragic loss, and prays for the repose of her soul.

“However, management strongly condemns the students’ unbridled brigandage, blocking the Ife/Ibadan and Ife/Ede highways and other adjoining roads that could be used as alternative routes, and engaging in other acts that are detrimental to their health and the safety of the general public,” the statement read.

In order to restore normalcy to the campus, the statement also instructed students to vacate their residence halls.

“As a result, after exhausting all required avenues to bring the students to order and restore normalcy to the Campus and its environs, the administration of Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile Ife, have closed the School until further notice.” This is to prevent more law and order breakdowns.

However, in the wee hours of today, Inside OAU Innovation gathered from an inside exclusive source that there will be a scheduled senate meeting on Wednesday, October 20th, 2021.
The meeting is set to evolve around the resumption and continuation of the rain semester that was put to an abrupt hold.

According to the source, the school management seeks to bring the indefinite closure of school to an end very soon and that the senate meeting will set the basis of when resumption will be fixed. It was gathered that the plausible dates are on the 25th of this month or the early days of November.
