Dean, Student Affairs, University of Ilorin, Prof. Lawal Omotesho,  said today that the publication of the names of  24 expelled students was to serve as deterrent to others.

Omotesho told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Ilorin that the university expelled the students for various acts of  misconduct.

“The fact that the university expelled the student is not new, but their names had to be published to serve as warning to fresh students.

“This is also necessary as orientation programme for fresh students is holding today,” he said.

He said  the expelled students were from various faculties while their offences included  forgery of  certificates and examination malpractice.

Omotesho said  the institution had  its rules and regulations which must be followed strictly by students, adding that failure to abide by  them  would result  in  dismissal.

Management, he added, had directed the students to keep away from the campus and submit all the university’s property in their possessions. (NAN)
