Osun Govt Seals OAU Over Tax Debt
The Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, Osun State has been sealed by the Osun State Government for failing to pay its tax.
The University main gate and the administrative block have been sealed when our correspondent visited the institution this morning.
It was gathered that the university owed a tax debt of N1.8 billion and had failed to pay the government over the years.
Heavily armed security operatives, including officials of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps, carried out the sealing exercise as ordered by the court.
Many members of staff of the university and people who had business to do on the campus were locked out, leading to heavy traffic at the university gate.
However, some commercial drivers who ply the routes are currently agitated and may cause mayhem if the gate is not open.
