According to Soaznews Etv, the university in a letter dated April 9th, 2021 hinged their decision of his expulsion on what it described as ''gross misconduct.''
Premium Times reported that Isang who was a finalist of the department of agricultural engineering had accused the governor in an article on Facebook of failing to fulfil his financial promise to graduating students in 2017.
The post which was made by the student using a pseudonym, Afrosix Jaara, where he accused the governor of 'scamming the students read in part:
"It’s 2 years and 166 days since he promised, yet none of the graduands received a naira even the first class graduands were unattended to when they went to his office."
