The University of Ibadan has suspended its student union leaders after a student protest led to the shutdown of the school.
“The Union Executive Council and Students Representatives council have been suspended, all activities of the Union have been suspended too,” the school’s public relations officer, Olatunji Oladejo, told PREMIUM TIMES on Tuesday
He said the decision did not affect postgraduate students.
The management of the school had on Monday shut the institution and directed the students to vacate the campus on or before 6 p.m.
The students had earlier taken to the streets in protest, alleging insensitivity on the part of the university management.
The students at a congress on Saturday passed a resolution to disrupt the forthcoming examinations if students were not provided with identity cards.
They also asked the authorities to constitute the Students’ Welfare Board as well as allow use of cooking appliances that had been banned in the halls of residence.
