started when Bishop Oyedepo (the chancellor) suddenly stormed out of the chapel
last Saturday while conducting a service session with the students. He called
the former dean of student affairs, Mr. Bassey and other members of staff and
faculty outside for a brief meeting.
discovered that the chancellor was angry because students were seen loitering
around the chapel, some talking and gisting, while some were playing.
students got to know of what he meeting was all about, many of them started
running into the chapel scrambling for seats and any free space they could.
Some boys who did not have ties on, started looking for ways to acquire some, even
a group of boys numbering up to five allegedly took a girl’s scarf and ripped
it to shreds using the parts to produce makeshift ties all not to get into
wasn’t enough, while Mrs. Aize Obayan (one of the key officers) was addressing
the student, there was a supposed murmuring amongst them (the students) so
Bishop Oyedepo walked up to the podium and politely took the microphone, saying
”if i hear the voice of any student, the curse of the lord shall fall upon that
one”. the chapel went dead silent.
the chancellor spoke on Discipline and his vision for the university,
immediately after the chancellor finished his speech and left the chapel, the
vice chancellor took the mic and told the students to wait behind because a
search was going to be carried out in all the halls of residence in order to
fish out students who did not attend the service.
years students were caught and an undisclosed number of lower level students, two
students were caught smoking weed, thus more than 200 students were expelled
from the university.
