Thirty-three students have been expelled by the Ebonyi State University, EBSU, Abakaliki, while 88 others were suspended over alleged misconduct, examination malpractice and admission racketeering.
The Registrar and Secretary of Senate, Mr. Egwu Sam, said in a statement that the Senate of the institution had at its 22nd emergency meeting, held on Thursday, August 23rd, 2012, decided to make public the offences of all the affected students.
He stated that the conduct of the expelled and suspended students is contrary to the rules and regulations governing the conduct of examinations and admission into the institution, stressing that those expelled from the university for grievous misconduct were not expected to be seen in the institution for any purpose.
“The suspended students for the stipulated period are to fail their examination and in addition should also stay away from the university for the period of the suspension and apply to the Registrar for re-admission when their suspension tenure elapses,” he said.
The Registrar further stated that the suspended students are to fail all the examination during the period of their suspension and would be required to register and retake all their courses. He warned the affected students to desist from show of irresponsibility as any other repeated act of gross misconduct would not be taken lightly.
