LASU final year student suspended for alleged rape

LASU-Entrance

Adeyemi Temitope, a final year Public Administration student of the Lagos State University, LASU, has been suspended from the institution.

An official bulletin of the institution, made available to the News Agency of Nigeria on Friday in Lagos, stated that Mr. Temitope was being tried in a law court over alleged cultism and rape.

The student will remain suspended pending the outcome of his trial in the court, the statement said.

The document indicated that the suspension had been approved by the Vice-Chancellor, Olanrewaju Fagbohun, based on the recommendation of the Students’ Disciplinary Committee.

“The Vice-Chancellor has approved the recommendation of the Students Disciplinary Committee that Adeyemi Temitope, with Matriculation Number 100832003, be suspended.

“Temitope, of the Department of Public Administration in the Faculty of Management Sciences, is suspended with immediate effect from the University.

“The suspension is pending the outcome of the court judgement on the case of cultism and rape against him,’’ the publication stated.

The university warned the suspended student to steer clear of the institution until the suspension was lifted.

  • So oju abe niko

    This is really sad! Always thought Premium Times is a serious media organization, in the mold of The Guardian in the 80s & 90s. Why is this news? A young man has been suspended from school while undergoing a rape trial. No court of law has yet decided on this. If the courts decide that the fellow is not guilty of rape and the university lifts the suspension, would PT report that news too? The point is, this is an issue that should not have gone beyond the LASU environment.
