Unilag medical students sue school authorities

22 March 2016, 19:40

Lagos - Some 100-level medical students at the University of Lagos have urged a Federal High Court in Lagos to quash the decision of the university’s Senate, which allegedly changed the academic requirement needed by them to proceed to 200-level.

The students, numbering about 31, claimed that the decision taken by the university’s Senate on January 27 was “an attempt to weed them out of the university.”

Already, the case has been assigned to Justice Sule Hassan, who has fixed hearing for Tuesday (today).

The students accused the university of raising the academic requirement in order to accommodate diploma students, who allegedly paid N500,000 to the institution’s College of Medicine.

The aggrieved students, through their lawyer, Jiti Ogunye, therefore, urged the court to declare the Senate decision as a nullity.

The students explained that they were admitted to the university in the 2014/2015 academic year to study Medicine and Surgery, Dentistry, Medical Laboratory Science, Nursing, Physiotherapy, Pharmacology, Physiology and Radiography.
