Authorities of the Lagos State University (LASU) have suspended 11 former executive members of the Students Society of History and International Studies (SSOHIS) indefinitely.

The university said this in its official bulletin obtained by the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Wednesday in Lagos.

It said the students organised the ill-fated Association Award Night party of Feb. 11, where a 200 level female student, Omolara Gbadeyan, ‎died.

The bulletin indicated that the deceased was in the Department of Industrial Relations and Personnel Management, Faculty of Management Sciences.

‎According to the bulletin, the affected students are henceforth not allowed to participate in any student-related activity.

It said they were also expected to face the students’ disciplinary committee immediately.

‎The University had earlier said that the organisers of the party, which claimed the life of the student, did not inform its management of the event.

It noted that the organisers sought no approval for it, which ‎was contrary to the rules and regulations of the institution.

According to an earlier bulletin, the university authority received the shocking news after the sad event had occurred.

It said the management immediately swung into action by directing the health service department and the Security unit, Students Affairs Division  to carry out detailed investigation on the reported incident.
