Kwara State University (KWASU) has said it has expelled no less than 87 students for alleged antisocial behaviour in the last two seasons.
KWASU Vice-Chancellor Prof Mohammed Akanbi (SAN) told reporters in Malete Moro local government areas ahead of this weekend hybrid combined convocation ceremonies of the institution.
Akanbi said: “Kwara State University has zero-tolerance for indiscipline and misconduct. All cases of indiscipline are investigated and appropriate punitive measures as retaken against students found guilty of such offence.
Students are also vulnerably exposed to antisocial influences which are inimical to their health and academic career. Exposure to negative influence outside the university campus is majorly responsible for the involvement of some students in internet fraud, substance abuse and other untoward crimes.“
The university don also alleged that some commercial transporters “are serving as couriers for the sale and distribution of illicit drugs on the campus.”
On the 2019/2020 and 2020/2021 convocation ceremonies, the professor of business law said that “in total, we are graduating 6,620 students at this convocation, 3,864 for the 2019/2020 session and 2,756 for the 2020/2021 session.“
