The University of Ilorin has expelled a final-year student, Salaudeen Aanuoluwa, of the department of microbiology for attacking a female lecturer, Mrs Rahmat Zakariyau, of the same department.
WuzupNigeria had reported that the student allegedly attacked the lecturer in her office because she refused to help him over his failure to do the mandatory Students Industrial Work Experience Scheme.
The institution’s spokesman Kunle Akogun in a statement on Monday said Salaudeen was expelled following a sitting by the student disciplinary committee where he was arraigned.
He said the student “has 48 days to appeal against the verdict to the Vice-Chancellor in case he feels dissatisfied with the decision.”
A letter written to Salaudeen by the university registrar read, “You will recall that you appeared before the Student Disciplinary Committee (SDC) to defend yourself in respect of an allegation of misconduct levelled against you.
“After due consideration of all evidence before it, the Committee was convinced beyond any reasonable doubt that the allegation of misconduct has been established against you. It has accordingly recommended to the Vice-Chancellor, who in exercise of the power conferred on him, has directed that you Salaudeen, Waliu Aanuoluwa be expelled from the University.
“Accordingly, you are hereby expelled from the University with immediate effect.
“You are required to submit forthwith, all University property in your custody including your Student Identity Card to the Dean of Student Affairs or his representative and keep off the campus.
“In case you are dissatisfied with this decision, you are free to appeal to the University Council through the Dean, Faculty of Life Sciences to the Vice-Chancellor within forty-eight (48) days of the date of this letter.”
