The university was closed until further notice by the authorities of Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile Ife.

The information was made public on Friday by the University's Public Relations Officer, Abiodun Olarewaju, who said that this was in accordance with Federal Government directives.

On Thursday the FG had ordered the shutdown of all tertiary institutions and unity schools to curb the spread of COVID-19 in the region.

“Accordingly, students are expected to be leaving their hostels and the campus beginning from Monday, March 23, 2020, latest by 5:00pm.

“Parents and guardians of our students are advised to ensure that their children and wards comply fully with the order,” the statement added.
