Students Panic As Osun Gov’t Seals Obafemi Awolowo University… Find Out Why

The Obafemi Awolowo University has been reportedly sealed by the Osun State government, sparking some panic among students.

According to a report by Punch Metro, officials of the Osun State Internal Revenue Service on Wednesday stormed the Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, and sealed the main gate and the administrative block over a tax debt of N1.8 billion.
It was gathered that the officials of the revenue agency, together with heavily armed security operatives, stormed the university and sealed the institution after getting an order of the court to do so.
One of the OAU officials told Punch Metro on the telephone that the officials came with policemen and members of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps and shut the main gate before going ahead to seal other places.
He said the closure of the main gate led to agitations from the staff and others who had business at the campus.
He said, “Officials of Osun State revenue agency sealed our main gate, the secretariat and other places this morning. They came together with armed policemen and NSCDC officials.
 
“They closed the main gate but some of the staff, commercial bus drivers and business operators especially food vendors and others became agitated and this led to a serious crisis. The gate was eventually opened but other places remained closed.”
