The management of the Olabisi Onabanjo University (OOU), Ogun State, on Monday prevented students who wore slippers from gaining entry into the university campus.

Speaking with FIJ while asking not to be named, students of the institution said they were made to queue at the gate and show their means of identification and footwear before they could be allowed entry.

They said students who wore slippers or any footwear that did not fully cover the feet were sent home immediately.

The source said Agboola Johnson, newly appointed Vice-Chancellor of the institution, was at the gate earlier in the morning, and was involved in the screening process.

Another source told FIJ that several students were sent home earlier, and he witnessed the enforcement at the gate.

When FIJ called Charles Adekoya, Deputy Vice-Chancellor (administration) of the institution, he declined comment, and asked that FIJ direct its questions to the university’s registrar.

However, he confirmed that the registrar was on leave, and would therefore be unable to speak at present.

“Direct your questions to the registrar, I am not authorised to speak for the university,” he said. “It is only the registrar that can receive messages from outsiders and respond, but even the registrar is on leave for one week.”
