No fewer than 68 students of the Kogi State University, Ayangba, have been expelled for various acts of examination malpractice and poor academic performance, the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports.

The statement revealed further that some students also had their admission withdrawn for not registering within the stipulated period, as well as wrong entry requirements.

While also explaining the take over of Professor Mohammed Abdulkadir as the Vice Chancellor of the institution from Professor Hassan Isah, whose tenure expired recently, the registrar said the affected students cut across all the faculties.

The new vice chancellor, who has since resumed, has promised to run an inclusive and consultative administration as he appealed to stakeholders to join hands with him in moving the school forward.

Meanwhile, there is unrest at the University of Jos (UNIJOS), Plateau state, where the lecturers have embarked on an indefinite strike over unpaid allowances, among other salient issues between academic staff and the institution's management.
