The expulsion is sequel to the recommendation of the University Disciplinary Panel which probed the incident that took place in an off-campus hostel on Saturday, November 16, 2019, and adjudged them culpable of gross misconduct and breach of the University Matriculation Oath.
The expulsion is in line with the position of Page 48 of the 2019/2020 Students Handbook which prescribes expulsion from the University for Students who engage in, " Physical assault or battery on another student outside the university premises".
