Professor Dapo Folorunsho Asaju, the Vice-Chancellor (VC) of Ajayi Crowther University in Oyo state gave the order for the school to be shut down after some students reportedly assaulted him.
Some male students of the private university created tension in the school on Friday, April 7. NAIJ.com gathered that male students in Ibadan hostel fought with guys in Joseph Adetiloye hostel over a female student.

A witness who wanted to be kept anonymous narrated what went down that day.
“Some students then 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 tensed, some yet-to-be-identified 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 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 SDC"
Daily Post tried speaking to Shina Bello, the deputy bursar (admin), who said he does not know anything about shutting down the school.
Few minutes after that, a text was sent by Prof Asaju, the VC, to all students. According to a 300 level student of the institution, the VC has taken a disciplinary action against the students. The concerned students would appear before the Students Disciplinary Committee (SDC).
