OSUN STATE POLITECHNIC SHUT DOWN WITH IMMEDIATE EFFECT

The management of Osun State Polytechnic, Iree, has closed down the institution indefinitely over the protest by students which turned violent and led to the destruction of some properties at the school’s medical centre.

It was reported that an HND 1 student of Applied Science identified as Aminu Sheu fainted yesterday afternoon soon after he finished his examination. He was reportedly rushed to the school medical centre at about 3:40pm but the staff on duty allegedly told those who brought him to the clinic that the clinic had closed for the day.

Before they could locate a nearest hospital, the student died. The death of the student angered the students making them come out on Saturday morning to protest the manner at which the school’s clinic handled the matter.

In the course of the protest, it was alleged that the clinic property was destroyed, some documents and vehicles parked at the clinic premises were set ablaze.

In a statement by the Media Relations Officer of the school, Tope Abiola on behalf of the school’s registrar, Barrister B. M. Salawu, the institution urged all students to vacate the school premises with immediate effect.

The statement reads,”This is to inform the general public that Osun State Polytechnic Iree has been closed down. As a result of this, all students are to vacate the school premises with immediate effect.”
