Four students of the Obafemi Awolowo University, OAU, Ile-Ife, have been suspended by the management for violating the policy of the institution.

 

The students are Omole Ibukun Ayodele, with registration number CVE/ 2011/ 042 of the Department of Civil Engineering; Jacob Tosin Grace, with registration number: LAW/ 2012/ 153 of the Faculty of Law;  Udeh John with registration number ASE/ 2015/ 362 of the Department of Arts and Social Sciences and Oluwalade Babatunde with registration number: EGL/ 2014/ 431 of the Department of English.

 

A release signed by the Public Relations Officer of the University, Mr. Abiodun Olarewaju, stated that the students were suspended for criminal activities, breach of the code of conduct for the University community and violent violation of their matriculation oath.

 

According to Olanrewaju, the students led some other persons in protest and violently disrupted academic and extra-curricular activities of the University by forcefully chasing other students out of the lecture halls under the guise of demonstrating against an alleged unsatisfactory power supply to the campus.

 

Olanrewaju also added that the students, together with other persons, vandalised commercial transport vehicles of the members of the National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW), Ile Ife, and drove two other vehicles and a Cabstar van, fully loaded with their groups, to More Police Station where other students, who were been interrogated by the police, were forcefully released by their group.

 

The PRO who said that the criminal aspect of the students conduct has been referred to the police for appropriate action, hinted that “the Vice Chancellor of the University, Professor Eyitope Ogunbodede, upon careful review of the facts and circumstances of the matter, has come to the inevitable conclusion that the students involved be suspended from the University in the interim, pending police investigation and until such time as the situation shall have been reviewed and resolved.

 

“The concerned students have been ordered to vacate the campus and are accordingly forbidden to participate in any activity of the University, either within or outside the campus.

 

“The University management has, therefore, advised law abiding students to concentrate on their studies and shun any act or utterance that is capable of elongating the academic calendar beyond the stipulated period,” the release stated.

Zamfara massacre: Yari’s attitude questionable –Kera

Spread the loveTweet  A communication strategist and Managing Director, Keraweb Media Ltd, Alhaji Dahiru Hassan Kera, has berated the Zamfara state Governor, Abdul’aziz Yari, over what he described as “his brazen show of unconcern and half-heartedness on the killings of over 40 villagers by armed bandit in the state.” In a statement issued in Abuja yesterday, Kera said the governor was in Abuja when the incident happened and instead of him to go back to his state to ascertain the situation and sympathise with the people. According to the statement, he lackadaisically proceeded to Daura in Katsina state with his colleagues to see President Muhammadu Buhari. “In a democracy, it’s a cardinal responsibility for government to protect lives and properties of citizens and in a situation where leaders cannot guarantee protection of their people from external and internal aggression, that leadership has failed and needs to be questioned,” the statement read in part. The media strategist wondered how a meeting with the president could be more important than the lives of 40 citizens. “Donald Trump was in Florida yesterday to console and share their sorrow on the 17 victims of the Parkland Shooting.
