Kwara State University has sent all its students home on account of students being a threat to peace on campus. Mrs Modupe Akinrinmade, the varsity’s registrar, signed a statement confirming the close of the campus with a resumption date that would be communicated to the students at a later date.

Students were further advised to leave campus before the clock of 2pm on Wednesday for their own safety and the reign of peace. Further inquiry into why the students were asked to go home, Vice Chancellor Prof. AbdulRasheed Na’Allah stated that the students who refuse to register for the new academic session are to be held responsible.

He further stated that despite the administration’s efforts to see reason with students regarding the countless re-opening of registration and also with the approach of the upcoming exams, shutting down was the best option. He exclaimed that this refusal would make it difficult and unfair to the administration if fees are not paid by some of the students.

Further inquest into why students would refuse to register for a new academic session remains unanswered as students took to protesting to be allowed to register and thus sit for their exams. The varsity’s administration still stands their grounds as to the reason for the shut down being peace and asks that students await further information as to when to return. Home Page
