Covenant University To Recall Expelled Students

After so many criticisms and appeals on the expulsion of over 120 students from Covenant University, Ota, Ogun State for not attending a university assembly, the Management of the institution led by Bishop David Oyedepo has agreed to reduce their punishment to 4 weeks suspension.


It was gathered that several groups including parents, lawyers and National Human Rights Commission are part of those that appealed to the management of the school for a rethink on the judgement slammed on the students.

Sources say the students are expected to resume back to school later this month or early February.

It would be recalled that the Bishop, David Oyedepo privately owned university is known for its strict rules and discipline, and expelled the student last year for not attending an assembly.
