The University Of Abuja has been shut indefinitely following a protest by students on the two campuses.
The institution was closed down on Monday by the University’s Governing Council while the students were ordered out of the hostels and campuses.
It was gathered that an industrial action recently embarked upon by a faction of the Academic Staff Union of Universities in the university also contributed to the crisis in the institution.
Some of the students, who took part in the protest at the Gwagwalada mini- campus, said they were chased out of the campus and the school put under lock and key.
At the main campus, notices were placed on all notice boards in each department, ordering every student to leave the school immediately.
The notice, signed by the Registrar, Mohammed Modibbo, read, “I am directed to inform you that given the situation in the university, the Vice Chancellor has approved that the university be closed down until further notice.
“You are therefore directed to vacate the university until further development is communicated to you.”
