The authorities of Adeleke University, Ede, Osun State, Nigeria, founded by Davido’s father, Dr Deji Adeleke are facing public scrutiny once again over their religious intolerance, in a country with a constitution that provides for freedom of religion.
The private school, which is founded on the religious ethics of the Seventh Day Adventist church, drove itself into the new storm following the suspension of a part three Law student, Lawal Toheeb, for failure to attend the university’s compulsory chapel activities.
Lawal was suspended last month for a semester and as P.M.News gathered, he may be expelled on resumption for not identifying and adhering to the religious activities in the school.
In a letter of suspension, signed by the school registrar, Mr. Oyerinde Caleb Oyejola JP, the student was found guilty of ‘gross disrespect to constituted authority”. This followed the approval by the President/Vice Chancellor of the report of the Students’ Disciplinary Committee
