The directive was contained in an official statement from the university management, signed by its Chief Public Relations Officer, Okwun Omeaku.

“This is to bring to the notice of all students and the entire University Community, that the University of Nigeria shall proceed on a TWO-WEEK MID SEMESTER BREAK with immediate effect," Omeaku.

“Consequently, all academic activities on the campuses are hereby suspended for the period.

“Students are by this notice directed to vacate their hostels within the next 24 HOURS, i.e., not later than 6pm. on TUESDAY, JUNE 02, 2015″.

Though the management called the break "a TWO-WEEK MID SEMESTER BREAK", Student Pulse gathered that the closure was done to forestall students' riot.

Rumors had been passed around of an impending student action after weeks of acute water scarcity and epileptic power supply.

Students have reacted angrily to the directive.
