Ebonyi varsity expels 33 students

07 December 2012, 11:16

Ebonyi - The Senate of the Ebonyi State University, Abakaliki, on Thursday announced the expulsion of 33 students and suspension of 88 others for various acts of malpractice.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the students were allegedly involved in various acts of examination malpractice and admission racketeering.

A statement from the Registrar and Secretary of Council, Mr Egwu Sam, said the decisions were taken after an emergency meeting of the Senate on Aug. 23.

``The Senate considered and approved for publication, the penalties against the students who were involved in various categories of examination and admission racketeering.

``The conduct of the expelled and suspended students was contrary to the stipulated guidelines and provisions of the institution’s examination and admission ethics.

``The students expelled from the university for involvement in these grievous misconducts are not to be seen in the institution,” the statement said.

It stated that the suspension, which ranged from one year to three years, cut across students of different faculties and departments.

The statement added that the suspended students were to fail their examinations within the stipulated period.

``They should also stay away from the university for the period of the suspension and apply to the registrar for re-admission when their suspension ends.

``The suspended students who are to fail the examinations are required to register and re-take the affected courses.

``The students are hereby warned to desist from such display of irresponsibility as any other repeated act of gross misconduct shall earn them stiffer punishment,” it said.

The statement said the institution had withdrawn the degree issued to a student of the department of agricultural economics, for failing to appear before its misconduct committee.

It said the school would ensure that the information was publicised to enable the public to take necessary action when dealing with the students involved.
