Osun State Government Seals Up OAU Over Non-Payment of N1.8bn Tax

The Osun State Internal Revenue Service on Wednesday sealed up the main gate and administrative block of the Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife over the non-payment of about N1.8 billion tax.

It was gathered that the officials of the revenue agency together with heavily armed security operatives stormed the university and sealed up the institution after getting an order of the court to do so.

The team, led by one Oladipo Babatunde, sealed the Senate Chamber and the administrative building before proceeding to seal the main gate, leaving the pedestrian gate unlocked.

The closure of OAU and other establishments in the state followed the expiration of the seven-day ultimatum issued to all affected establishments by the state government.

Babatunde revealed that the institution owed the state government about N1.8 billion and they had no choice than to seal after the management of OAU refuses to meet up with the deadline issued to them.
