Management of the University of Ilorin, Unilorin, has expelled one of its students, Salaudeen Waliu Aanuoluwa, of the Department of Microbiology after being found guilty of assaulting a female lecturer of the same department.
It was gathered that the Salaudeen has just a few months to graduate from the Department of Microbiology, Faculty of Life Sciences of the university.
A statement by the university’s Director of Corporate Affairs, Mr Kunle Akogun, stated that the verdict was handed down by the Student Disciplinary Committee where Salaudeen was arraigned on Monday, adding that he has 48 days to appeal against the verdict to the Vice-Chancellor in case he feels dissatisfied with the decision.
“Salaudeen has since been handed over to the police for further necessary action,” the statement said.
A letter written to Salaudeen by the University Registrar reads, “You will recall that you appeared before the Student Disciplinary Committee (SDC) to defend yourself in respect of an allegation of misconduct levelled against you.
“After due consideration of all evidence before it, the committee was convinced beyond any reasonable doubt that the allegation of misconduct has been established against you. It has accordingly recommended to the Vice-Chancellor, who in exercise of the power conferred on him, has directed that you Salaudeen, Waliu Aanuoluwa be expelled from the University.
“Accordingly, you are hereby expelled from the university with immediate effect.
“You are required to submit forthwith, all university property in your custody including your Student Identity Card to the Dean of Student Affairs or his representative and keep off the campus.
“In case you are dissatisfied with this decision, you are free to appeal to the university council through the Dean, Faculty of Life Sciences to the Vice-Chancellor within forty-eight (48) days of the date of this letter.”
It is recalled that the 400-level student of the Department of Microbiology, Faculty Of Life Sciences of the university had reportedly beaten his project supervisor, a female lecturer, to stupor last Thursday.
Findings gathered showed that the student, also known as Captain Walz, is a popular student in the school and reportedly carried out the ugly act because the lecturer refused to cover him for not observing the compulsory Students Industrial Work Experience Scheme (SIWES).
The offender had proceeded to the office of his project supervisor, Mrs Zakariyya, with the intention of beating her to death.
An eyewitness account had it that, “He went to the woman’s office to seek her help for his issue because he didn’t do the SIWES.
“He entered the woman’s office and started banging the table. The woman abused him and he moved closer to the woman and started slapping the woman.
“The woman tried to escape but he kept pursuing the woman, the lecturer ran into an office but Captain Walz broke the window and started punching her hardly.
“The woman was calling for help but people weren’t around immediately, until later.
“While trying to escape, he pursued the woman till she fell down and had head cut. He then tried to strangle her till she was in a coma.”
Speaking on the development, the Director of Corporate Affairs in the university, Mr Kunle Akogun, confirmed that Mrs Zakariyyah, teaching staff in the Department of Microbiology, Faculty of Life Sciences, is now relatively stable and recuperating after the ugly incident of last Thursday where she was attacked by a 400Level male student.
“A visit by the Vice-Chancellor, Professor Sulyman Age Abdulkareem, in company of the Dean, Faculty of Life Sciences, Professor Oladiji; the Director, University Health Services, Dr Odunola and a few other staff to the victim and her family this morning, Saturday, September 13, 2021, confirmed that.
“The VC, who described the incident as sad and unfortunate, assured that justice shall be done on the matter.
“He has, however, ordered proper care of the victim on the bill of the university.
“He reiterated his commitment to the welfare of all staff and law-abiding students.”
