Hours after the tragic accident that claimed scores of lives at Ondo State, Adekunle Ajasin University, Akungba-Akoko, (AAUA), has been shut down indefinitely.

The Dangote truck which was carrying bags of cement allegedly suffered a break failure and ran into passersby, students and traders before ramming into shops opposite the university after it.

It was gathered that the move by the institution to shut down the school was due to the rising tension among students as well as indigenes of the community over the allegation that the government has failed to find lasting solutions to the incessant road crashes which had claimed lots of lives in the community.
In a circular signed by the Acting Registrar of the institution, Opeoluwa Akinfemiwa, students of the institutions were directed to leave the school premises by 6:00 pm on Sunday. 

The circular read;
