Assault: UNILORIN Expels Student, Faces Prosecution

The management of the University of Ilorin has expelled Waliu Salaudeen, a student of the Department of Microbiology, for assaulting a female lecturer in the same department.

A statement by the varsity’s Director of Corporate Affairs, Mr. Kunle Akogun, stated that the ruling was made by the Student Disciplinary Committee after Salaudeen was arraigned on Monday.

According to Akogun, the student has 48 days to appeal the verdict.

“Salaudeen has since been handed over to the police for further necessary action,” he added.

A letter to Salaudeen by the varsity Registrar, Mrs. Fola Olowoleni, obtained by The Punch correspondent, read, “You will recall that you appeared before the Student Disciplinary Committee to defend yourself in respect of an allegation of misconduct leveled against you.

“After due consideration of all the 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 the exercise of the power conferred on him 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 with 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.”
