“We love our students and they should go home because we don’t want them to be victims of whatever action that will accompany the strike,” Mr Egbedokun said.

However, the Registrar of the OAU, Margaret Omosule in a circular released on Tuesday asked students not to join the industrial strike action.

According to the university’s Registrar, there are no plans to compel students to vacate the campus until the end of year holidays.

“(We) wish to assure all students that the University Academic Calendar for the 2017/2018 Academic Session is very much on course.
