OAU sealed off by state agency: Punch news online said Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU) was sealed off by Osun State Internal Revenue Service, on Wednesday, May 2, 2018.
The reason behind the showdown by the revenue agency is said to be alleged non-payment of about N1.8bn tax.
Consequently, both the main gate and administrative block of the university was sealed off.
According to PUNCH, an OAU official said that:
Officials of the Osun State revenue agency sealed off our main gate and the secretariat and the other places this morning. They came together with armed policemen and civil defence operatives.
They closed the main gate and some members of staff, commercial bus drivers and business operator’s, especially food vendors and others became agitated and this led to a serious crisis. The gate was eventually opened but other places remained closed.
