Oyo Varsity Expels Students Over Colleague’s Death

The Ajayi Crowther University in Oyo State has on Saturday announced that some of its students who had taken part in a brawl that resulted in a colleague’s death had been expelled.

The university noted that those involved were not cult members, and did not disclose the precise number of students that were dismissed.

Before the “unfortunate death of the student,” the deceased was allegedly suspected of stealing a cell phone, according to a statement released on Saturday.

The statement read,

“Contrary to what is trending, the university affirms that there is no cultism in the institution, just as the university has zero tolerance for any sort of anti-social vices and misconduct. It is important to stress that the expelled students do not belong to any cult group.”

“What actually happened is that the deceased was alleged to have stolen a mobile telephone, but instead of reporting the issue to the university management, the expelled students could not control their emotions. Their actions led to the unfortunate death of the student.”

“The university has taken swift action by handing over all the students involved to the Nigeria Police Force for investigation, with the assurance that justice will be served.”
