Bed Bug Infestation: OAU Students Cry For Help

Students of Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU), Ile -Ife, are currently crying for help, as their halls of residence have been taken over by bed bugs.

The students who spoke through their Students Union, claimed that the university management has failed to live up to expectations and have left students at the mercy of blood sucking bed bugs in their halls.

In an open letter signed by the Union President, Oyekan Ibukun Edward and obtained by CityMirrorNews, the students threatened to showdown if the issue is not taken care of by the school management.

Read below an excerpt from the open letter.

“It is no longer news how the management of various varsities across the nation maltreat students by harbouring and accommodating them on filthy and “Kirikiri-like” prisons called halls of residence/hostels.”

The students further alleged that the university management has refused to fumigate hostels even after resumption of freshmen.

“To avoid the envisaged embarrassing situation, we wrote to the management through her Division of Students’ Affairs to ensure that the Halls of Residence are fumigated before resumption, that is, Sunday 30th April, 2017 to avoid the barbaric “Military coup” of bedbugs we have even been facing severely before the last session ended (2015/2016 session) and to ensure that our fresh students are not affected with this dangerous bedbugs as the need for them to live happily in their halls can never be flinched and flung.

“Bedbugs should be extincted from our halls of residence. We say no to their parades in our rooms, they are not our roommates.”

The students also raised an alarm that bushes have began to overtake their hostels thereby leaving them open to scorpions, snakes and other dangerous animals.
