“The Vice-Chancellor has reviewed the agitation by a section of the students’ body on Tuesday.

“After due consultation and in the overall interest of all students’ body, the Vice Chancellor has, on behalf of Senate, approved the immediate closure of the University.

“This is on security to the students’ action being hijacked by hoodlums; and thereby any form of breakdown of law and within and outside the campuses of the University,’’ she said.
