The Federal University of Technology Akure (FUTA) has expelled six students over the bullying of a fellow student.
Naija News recalls that the expelled students stormed one of the off-campus hostels where the victim was resident, attacked her and stripped her half-naked and also recorded the incidents with phones.
It was gathered that the victim was beaten to coma for calling the girls prostitutes.
According to Deputy Director, Corporate Communications of the institution, Adegbenro Adebanjo, the expulsion is sequel to the recommendation of an investigative panel which probed the incident that took place in an off campus hostel on Saturday, November 16, 2019.
The expelled students are: Popoola Olaniyi Agboola IDD/ (300L); Oluwadare Faith Tobiloba FST ( 200L); Nandi Yohanna Jessica IPE/ ( 200L); Ajuwon Tolani Emmanuella FAT/ (100L); Emmanuel Funmilayo Taiwo FAT/ (100L) and Alao Olabimpe Cecilia CSP/ (100 L)
The expulsion is in line with the position of Page 48 of the 2019/2020 Students Handbook which prescribes expulsion from the University for Students who engage in physical assault or battery on another student outside the university premises. “As a consequence of their expulsion, their studentship of FUTA ceases forthwith with all its rights and privileges.”
