UniAbuja expels 46 students for misconduct

No fewer than 46 students of the University of Abuja have been expelled by the university’s Senate for their involvement in various acts of misconduct.

 

Dr Habib Yakoob, Head, Information and University Relations, disclosed this via a statement in Abuja on Sunday.

 

Yakoob said that the misconduct was a breach of the students’ sworn matriculation oath.

 

He said that five other students were rusticated for one semester, while the cases of three others involved in sundry offences would be re-tried, as seven accused students were exonerated, discharged and acquitted.

 

“Senate at its 175th Regular Meeting held on May 27, considered the report and recommendations of the Students Disciplinary Committee and after due diligence, approved the expulsion, rustication, retrial and exoneration of the affected students.

 

“The expelled students cut across several departments: 15 of the students are in their 400 level, 20 in 300 level, eight in 200 level and three in 100 level.

 

“The affected students have been directed to hand over any university property in their possession, including identity cards, to their heads of departments and units. They have also been advised to vacate the campus immediately.

 

“The university authority wishes to restate its unwavering determination to protect its values and strongly warns students to respect and uphold their matriculation oath, as they will be held accountable whenever they breach it,” he said.
