According to the report, five undergraduate students were also rusticated for one academic session, three others rusticated for a semester, while three others had no case and were acquitted.

The decision to expel the students was reached at the 174th Regular Meeting of the Senate of the institution on Wednesday, November 6, 2019, where it considered the report and recommendations of the Central Examination Misconduct Committee.

He said, “Among the undergraduate students expelled, 27 were in 400 Level; 19 in 300 Level, 16 in 200 Level, two students in 100 Level, while five others were in their 5th, 6th, and 7th sessions.

The breakdown also shows that 47 of the expelled students were from Faculty of Science, 23 from Faculty of Management Sciences, 20 from Faculty of Social Sciences, while 10 others cut across various Faculties.

The affected students have since been directed to handover any university property in their possession, including their identity cards to their heads of department and unit. They were also advised to vacate the campus immediately.

The University of Abuja wishes to reiterate that it is determined to ensure academic discipline among its staff and students and that those who violate the rules and regulations of the institution would be appropriately disciplined.
