The Kwara State Polytechnic, Ilorin, has suspended the on-going first semester examinations.

The deputy registrar, information and publication, Ajibola Jimoh, said on Saturday that the “development is due to the 24-hour curfew declared by Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq to contain further escalation of street protests and wanton looting of government and private property in Ilorin on Friday night.”

He said that the notice took immediate effect. The official did not immediately say when academic activities would resume.

Ilorin witnessed widespread looting on Friday and Saturday after residents looted food items and other supplies from COVID-19 supply warehouse, Shoprite and other supermarkets in the state capital.
