The Ladoke Akintola University of Technology, Ogbomoso, has expelled 45 students for their involvement in examination malpractices.
The list of the affected students was contained in the report of the university’s senate after its sitting of February 20 2020.
The school on Wednesday forwarded the names and details of the affected students to all students via the school’s electronic mail transmission system.
According to the mail, which was made available to PREMIUM TIMES, the senate’s decision was informed by the recommendations of the Examination Malpractices Panel and Student Disciplinary Committee.
The affected students cut across departments including Architecture, Civil Engineering, Medical Lab Sciences, Mechanical Engineering, and Electrical Engineering.
An analysis of the details, however, showed that only two of the students investigated escaped the hammer. Oyedokun Ridwan Oyeniyi of the department of Agric Engineering was exonerated by the committee while Agboola Oluwakemi Felicia was discharged for want of evidence.
Also, while the 45 students were expelled with effect from Harmattan Semester of 2018/2019 academic session, five students bagged four semesters suspension and two graduates, Akintunde Olawale and Ibitoye Ahmed, had their certificates withdrawn.
