OAU: Despite the dismissal of the court case filed by the Obafemi Awolowo University against Five students of the university yesterday, the students' portal page is yet to be reactivated.

The cancellation of the case of students facing trials over allegations leveled them by the university management was reported earlier today.

 This was pronounced by Justice Omisade yesterday at Ajebamidele Magistrate court, after the 6th adjournment.

Also, this news outfit reported how the five students; Gbenga Oloniniran, Oyedeji Samson, Olajide Adedamola, Jimoh Oladipupo and Adeniji John were arrested on 21st and arraigned on 22nd for opposing the forceful eviction of students from a female hostel, Moremi.


According to the concerned students, all efforts made to reactivate their portal pages have proved abortive as they are still denied access to their online pages and yet to register courses after 5 weeks of resumption.

"During one of our meetings with the CSO, he said we should go and sort out the court case first, which we are done with." Gbenga Oloniniran told our correspondent.

Gbenga also stated that someone made it known that the university senate has resolved to lock their online portals indefinitely.

Another student, Oyedeji Samson, a 300 level student of the Faculty of Technology, expressed his happiness to the latest development but disclosed that he is not optimistic about the 'opening' of their portal pages.

"With the way everything is going, despite the victory, I don't think they can open our portal anytime soon. Not even this semester." Mr. Samson said.

Speaking with OAU KILONSHELE, other students of the university, in an interview congratulated their colleagues on the victory.

"Wow! The students are now free at last." a female student, identified as Evelyn, exclaimed.

"Atleast they are now free from the psychological trauma of attending court sessions." Uthman Samad added.

However, Oladunni Samuel, the secretary of the Education Rights Campaign, told our correspondent that the security unit of the university, has released the items seized on the day of the arrest, in accordance to the court order.

"They've given us the Megaphone speaker and the mobile phone they collected from us."

Meanwhile, the Dean of the Division of Students Affairs, Isiaka Aransi, and the Public relations Officer, Abiodun Olanrewaju, have refused to respond to calls and texts sent to get the comments of the school over the reactivation of the students' portal pages.

"I'll call you back, I'm currently driving." was the only response gotten from the Dean and he didn't call back and refused to answer calls several hours after the initial response.
