U.I Suspends Student Who Led A Protest Demanding Identity Cards For Students In 2017

The management of University of Ibadan has suspended one of its student, Ojo Aderemi, for leading a protest in 2017 over the school’s inability to provide identity cards for students.

The students also demanded for the use of electric-powered cooking appliance in their hostels. The peaceful protests forced the university to be shut for weeks.

Mr Aderemi, on Thursday, told a PT correspondent that the university suspended him on Wednesday for his role in the 2017 protest.

“I was informed about the panel’s decision yesterday,” he said. “I have been suspended for four semesters,” he told the correspondent.


  1. Next time, mind your business, this is naija

  2. The person that said "Mind your business, this is Naija" just made it quite clear that Nigerians can and will never stand up for anything and this is why we will keep getting stupid treatments from those in power.

    "It's none of my business" is the mindset that is killing us all.....Sad.
