Culled from Vanguard
LAGOS — The authorities of the Covenant University, Ota, Ogun State, might have commuted the expulsion of its 200 students.
The university authorities were last week asked by the National Human
Rights Commission of Nigeria to come forward with all records of the
processes that led to the expulsion.
But Vanguard learnt yesterday from a reliable source in National
Human Rights Commission that the university authorities, which will be
meeting with the Commission on Friday in Abuja, has denied expelling the
students, but said they were suspended.
The lawyer to the University, Dele Adesina (SAN) when contacted by
Vanguard last night on phone denied any knowledge of the commuttal of
expulsion to suspension.
It will be recalled that Vanguard had earlier reported the expulsion
of 126 students of the university for not attending the ‘departure
service’, meant to sign off from the school at the end or the semester
on November 30.
It will be a good idea if the University Authorities reconsiders their students.
