According to Ademola Adesoji, the university’s spokesperson, the server was unexpectedly attacked at midnight. However, the technical team promptly responded and successfully prevented the hackers from gaining access to the core software and question bank.

Resolving the damage inflicted on the server required a significant amount of time, which resulted in an undue delay in the commencement of the exams. Consequently, the exams had to be rescheduled for two out of the thirteen designated centers.

Despite the challenges faced, the university expressed satisfaction that the hackers or individuals opposing the recruitment process failed in their attempts to undermine their efforts. Over the past eight days, the university has faced significant obstacles in its commitment to ensuring the success of the Osun State government.

Examinations have already been concluded at eleven of the thirteen locations today. However, the remaining two problematic centers, namely Osogbo and Ikire, will be rescheduled based on a decision by the Ministry.

The statement acknowledges that such situations, including disruptions in exams, have occurred even in other examinations such as the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) exams.

The university extends its sincere apologies for the agitation caused by the incident and assures everyone that they are still on track, albeit slightly behind schedule.
