OAU Amphitheatre: Management Calls For Calm After Rainstorm Destroys Building, Injures Students



The Vice-Chancellor (VC), Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, Professor Adebayo Simeon Bamire, has appealed for calm and urged students and staff of the institution to go about their academic and administrative activities without any form of untoward action.

The VC’s appeal comes on the heels of the torrential rainfall of early Thursday morning, accompanied by a whirlwind which affected the ceiling of the Amphitheatre as it fell off and injured a few of the students.

The students were having a lecture, SER when the incident occurred.

The VC led other principal officers to the Medical and Health Centre of the University, and ensured that the injured students were given adequate medical attention.

The VC also followed two other students, whose cases demanded more medical attention, to the Obafemi Awolowo University Teaching Hospital Complex (OAUTHC), where the Chief Medical Director (CMD), Professor John Okeniyi, physically supervised the proceedings.

Meanwhile, the OAU management has sealed off the amphitheatre, the venue of the unfortunate incident, until further notice.
