The Osun State University has announced the suspension of a 100-level student from its Department of English and Literary Studies, following her alleged participation in the robbery of a Lagos-based businessman, amounting to N1.5 million.
Vice Chancellor Clement Adebooye made the announcement during a press conference held on the main campus in Osogbo, the capital of Osun State, on Sunday.
According to Adebooye, the university authorities have taken the decision to place Victory Ahiante on indefinite suspension, in accordance with the regulations governing studentship, until the final resolution of her case.
It was reported that Ahiante, a resident of Edo State, was apprehended by the Osun State Police Command after purportedly enticing her social media boyfriend from Lagos to Ikire.
Subsequently, her boyfriend, known as Ifanla, and his accomplices allegedly robbed the victim of his phone and transferred over N1.5 million from his account.
Adebooye expressed disbelief at the accusation leveled against Ahiante, stating that her case deviated from the university’s standards in terms of character and commitment to learning.
He also urged fellow students to refrain from engaging in criminal activities, emphasizing that the university would not tolerate such behavior.
“As we all know, Osun State University is widely renowned for our commitment to excellence in academics and our core values of responsible, law-abiding, and highly patriotic citizenship. We remain fully dedicated to upholding these ideals,” stated the Vice Chancellor.
