The Management of Obafemi Awolowo University has reassured students and parents of security of lives and property.
This was contained in a release by the Public Relations Officer of the University, Mr. Abiodun Olarewaju, a copy of which was made available to osun.life. The statement reads;
This is to inform the general public that the Management of the Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile – Ife, is aware of an open letter, trending online, purportedly issued by a pseudonymous “Cultists of Aloha clan” threatening to invade our University campus on ” June 1 to rain bullets of death, sorrow and grief on innocent students”.
Ordinarily, it is not ideal for the University to respond to such an open letter, detailing what the management is doing to nip the said attack in the bud, considering the implication of such action security wise; but we consider it expedient to inform the stakeholders in the education sector, particularly our students, their parents and, or guardians, alumni and those who place high premium on lives and sanctity of human existence that the university management is on top of the situation, having informed the agencies of government saddled with the responsibility of securing lives and property, in addition to the internal security mechanism that have been put in place.
We hereby assure all parents and, or guardians that the security of their children and wards is guaranteed and that the students are advised to go about their normal academic activities without any apprehension, but should be security conscious and quickly report any strange movement to the appropriate organ of the university.
