UI students protest against expulsion of colleagues

There was unrest in the premises of University of Ibadan today (Tuesday) as the students of the institution protested the expulsion of three of their colleagues by the school’s management and also the poor facilities in the university.

According to the President of the Student Union Government, Mr. Ojo Oluwanifemi, told newsmen in Ibadan that students were being “victimised” by the school authority.

They also called on the Federal Government to review the funding of the school because “it is not enough to take care of the needs of the school.”

They urged the provision of facilities that will aid learning.

Oluwanifemi told our correspondent that while Anyam Kingsley was expelled for insulting the vice-chancellor, Prof. Idowu Olayinka, on Facebook, Philip Olatinwo expelled for disrupting a party two years ago.

Oluwanifemi said, “Olatinwo explained that he was not among those who disrupted the party and that he was only unfortunate to be around the area while the act was being perpetrated.

“He said he was on his way to buy food when the disruption happened. But he was expelled on the ground that during the Senate probe, he was rude to the members.

“As the students’ union president of the school, I was supposed to be at the sitting, but I was prevented from the chamber.”
