The University of Medical Sciences(UNIMED) in Ondo, has been shut down following fears arising from the increasing EndSARS nationwide protest.
A circular signed by one Ezekiel Adeniran on behalf of the Registrar on Tuesday stated that the Vice-Chancellor, Adesegun Fatusi, had directed the institution’s closure.
“Following the ongoing nationwide protest, the Vice-Chancellor, Professor Adesegun Fatusi on behalf of the University Senate, has directed that the university should be closed with immediate effect,” the circular dated October 20, 2020, stated.
“The above information is for the strict compliance of all students as they are requests to vacate the university premises immediately for their safety and protection.”
EndSARs protesters had poured out into the streets of Akure and Ondo City on Tuesday morning barricading major roads and creating difficulty for vehicular and human traffic.
There were reports of an attack on a staff of the institution during the protest, necessitating the action by the institution’s VC.
