The Federal University of Technology Akure (FUTA) has expelled six students involved in beating up another student of the institution.

This was made known on Tuesday, by Adegbenro Adebanjo, the Deputy Director of Corporate Communications of the institution.

He said, their expulsion from the university is sequel to the recommendation of an investigative panel which probed the incident that took place in an off-campus hostel on November 16.

“The Expelled students are: 1. Popoola Olaniyi Agboola IDD/ (300L) 2. Oluwadare Faith Tobiloba FST ( 200L) 3. Nandi Yohanna Jessica IPE/ ( 200L) 4. Ajuwon Tolani Emmanuella FAT/ (100L) 5. Emmanuel Funmilayo Taiwo FAT/ (100L)and 6. Alao Olabimpe Cecilia CSP/ (100 L),” he said.

“The expulsion is in line with the position of Page 48 of the 2019/2020 Students Handbook which prescribes expulsion from the University for Students who engage in, “Physical assault or battery on another student outside the university premises”.

“As a consequence of their expulsion their studentship of FUTA ceases forthwith with all its rights and privileges.”

In the video which went virile last week, the expelled students can be seen beating up an 100 level student. This drew wide spread condemnation, with many Nigerians calling for thr expulsionnof the students, to serve as punishement for their misbehavour.
