Prof. Elujoba: OAU students, workers force judge to reverse remand order

Students and workers of the Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU) on Tuesday forced a judge at the Osun State High Court, Ede, Justice Oladimeji David, to reverse his earlier order remanding the ex -Vice Chancellor of the institution, Prof. Anthony Elujoba, in Ilesha prison.

The reversal came after the students and workers protested the judge’s ruling and locked the courtroom.

They also prevented the judge and other officials from leaving the court premises.

This continued until the judge ordered that the former vice chancellor should be sent to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission’s (EFCC) custody as demanded by the protesting group.

Justice David also rescheduled the case from July 19 to July 14.

Members of the institution’s Non Academic Staff Union (NASU) were more vocal in their protest as one of its members broke an egg on the court’s exit to prevent the judge and others from leaving the courtroom when they heard that the ex-vice chancellor should be kept at Ilesha prison.

Some OAU students and workers also broke the court’s gate to forcefully remove Prof. Elujoba from the scene, but he refused to leave the place, saying “he will not go against the court order.”

Prof. Elujoba and the university’s bursar, Mrs. Josephine Akeredolu, are standing trial for alleged misappropriation of N1.4 billion.
