The management of Adekunle Ajasin University, Akungba-Akoko (AAUA), has ordered the closure of the institution with immediate effect.
The management directed all students to vacate the campus by 6 p.m. on Sunday.
The management gave the directive in a statement issued by Mr Opeoluwa Akinfemiwa, the Acting Registrar of the university.
The closure followed mounting tension over Saturday’s accident, which led to the death of eight students of the institution.
A road accident in front of the university resulted in the deaths.
Some students of the institution had since then taken to the streets to protest the killing of their colleagues in the fatal accident.
