FUTA expels six students who brutalised mate

The Federal University of Technology, Akure, Ondo State, has expelled six students who brutalised a female student, Boluwatife, outside the campus of the institution a few weeks ago.

The expelled students are, Popoola Olaniyi, Oluwadare Tobiloba, Nandi Jessica, Ajuwon Emmanuella, Emmanuel Taiwo and Alao Cecilia.

The six sanctioned students were reported to have brutalised Boluwatife following an allegation that she gossipped about one of them at a hostel outside the campus of the university.

It was gathered that the institution’s action against the erring students followed the report of the disciplinary panel set up by the management of the institution on the matter.

The development was confirmed by the Deputy Director, Corporate Communications of the FUTA, Mr Adegbenro Adebanjo, in a statement issued on Tuesday in Akure, the Ondo State capital.

According to the statement, the expulsion of the students was in line with the institution’s rules and regulations.
