VC Shuts University After Students Poured Water On Him
A Vice Chancellor of a Nigerian university has ordered the closure of the school after students poured water on him.
Professor Dapo Folorunsho Asaju, Vice Chancellor of Ajayi Crowther University (ACU) Oyo State, ordered the closure after a physical assault on him by male students of the school.
Trouble started last Friday when some male students of ‘Ibadan Hostel’ and ‘JA (Joseph Adetiloye) Hostel’ allegedly fought over a female student.
The VC was said to have directed internal security personnel to put the situation under control before it escalated.
When security staff got there, the students rather than stop the commotion continued, and later poured water on the security personnel.
Word got to the VC who decided to personally intervene. On his arrival, the students got violent and said he should leave.
As the situation got more tense, some yet-to-be-identified students poured water and thrash on him.
Prof Asaju was so angry that he cursed them and vowed to take action.
Again on Sunday during church service, some students whose phones were seized disrupted service in protest.
The VC then got up and said since it appeared students were getting out of control, he would shut the school and punish any one indicted in recent incidents being investigated by the Students Disciplinary Committee (SDC)
The indicted students are to appear on Tuesday before the (SDC).
