Unrest trails the Ondo State Government owned Adekunle Ajasin University Akungba (AAUA) from the shutting down of the institution to the expelling and suspending of students for violence and examination malpractice, there is also a case of cultism. What is next?
Outcome of the Unpleasing Acts in AAUA
The student union leaders have dissociated the students from the rampage which destroyed the institution’s properties and that of individuals in their host community. They fingered miscreants, who hijacked the students’ peaceful protest to wreck havoc in the community. Over 40 persons including students were arrested and detained by police after the bloody protest. Vanguard gathered that what infuriated the students, leading to the eventual violent protest was the cause of death of their colleague, who was conveyed in the university ambulance to the Federal Medical Centre, Owo for medical attention.
Speaking with Vanguard Newspaper,The Management has decided to reduce the N25, 000 reparation fee earlier charged in respect of the April 9 students’ violent protest to N15, 000.” He asked the students present evidence of payment and a copy of sworn Affidavit to be of good behaviour at the Faculty Office to obtain Clearance Certificate from Monday, May 16 to Friday, May 20, 2016.
The Student Union President in the institution, also told the vanguard newspaper that the Adegbola Oluyemi said the money was on the high side and pleaded with the school management to review it downwards to between N5,000 and N10,000 per student.
