Authorities of the Federal University of Agriculture Abeokuta (FUNAAB), Ogun State has ordered closure of the school after a violent protest by students of the institution that left five vehicles burnt, seven vandalised and a church attacked.

A statement issued by the management, said that students are expected to vacate the school before 6PM on Thursday and proceed on a week mid-semester break.

The protest is reported to be as a result of the alleged insensitivity of the school management and the police over alleged incessant attacks by hoodlums at hostels.

During the protest, which turned violent, two policemen were said to have been injured while a student was said to have been shot but this was denied by the police.

Meanwhile about 34 persons are said to have been arrested by the police in connection with incident, the Public Relations Officer, Mr Oyeyemi Abimbola, however said that those found culpable would be made to face the music.
