Enuguâ€”The Enugu State University of Science and Technology, ESUT, has vowed to expel any student involved in the sale of books, hand-outs and other forms of extortion.
Professor Chidi Ugwu, the Acting Vice Chancellor of the university, gave the warning in a statement in Enugu, yesterday.
â€œSimilarly, dismissal from service awaits any staff of ESUT, both academic and non academic, found to be extorting money from students under any guise,â€ he said. The statement also warned students against sorting lecturers for grades as the consequences would be very grave for them.
