Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that a student had sued a university after he was expelled.

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". An act they said constituted a breach of the Matriculation Oath.

The expulsion letter which was signed by the university Registrar, John E. Udo, also reads that the man is barred from entering the campus premises.
