The management of the University of Lagos (UNILAG) has denied rusticating one of its students for dancing. This is according to its spokesman, Toyin Adebule.
Recall that after a video of a student dancing with the statue of the late UNILAG Vice-Chancellor, Professor Babatunde Sofoluwe started trending, some social media users had alleged that she had been rusticated for 4 semesters over that.
The student who appeared in the video is said to be a law student. It is claimed that the video was taken about two months ago but only became public knowledge few days ago over the alleged incidence of rustication. The matter has so far attracted mixed reactions from social media users.
Adebule was emphatic that such an allegation was “false and should be disregarded” when contacted by
EduCeleb on Monday.
He noted that while the university encourages good conduct among its students, there was no iota of truth in social media rumours that the lady who appeared in the video was rusticated for four semesters.
