The authorities of the University of Ibadan have closed down the school for two weeks.
The decision to shut the university was taken on Monday following the fuel scarcity in the country which has crippled provision of essential services.
The students of the school had begun protest complaining about lack of electricity and water supply since the strike by oil workers began. The strike was called off on Monday with the oil workers pledging to begin the lifting of oil.
The Senate Committee on Downstream oil headed by Senator Magnus Abe had brokered a truce between the Federal Government and NUPENG over the contentious issues in the strike.
Authorities of the university did not want to take chances and as such sent the students home.
