Ekiti State University Threatens To Expel 10,000 Students

Authorities of Ekiti State University, Ado-Ekiti, have threatened to expel about 10,000 students who have not paid the reparation fee of N6, 500 and completed the new screening exercise imposed on the students by the university.

A source, who pleaded anonymity, said the Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Oladipo Aina, said this at a meeting held with principal officers of the university on Friday. 

The university had slammed the fee on all its students and asked them to come for the verification of their status following the vandalisation of some buildings and looting of the livestock farms of the university during a violent demonstration on September 28.

The  protest which also left about 10 vehicles completely burnt was triggered off when the news of the death of a final year student of the Accountancy Department, Abiola Yusuf, who was knocked down by a vehicle, filtered into the campus.

The university was shut down following the protest but was reopened on December 3 for commencement of the screening exercise.
