The Osun State University has suspended a 100-level student of its Department of English and Literary Studies for her alleged involvement in the robbery of a businessman based in Lagos of N1.5 million.
The Vice Chancellor of the university, Prof Clement Adebooye, announced the suspension of Victory Ahiante on Sunday, July 16 while addressing journalists on the main campus in Osogbo, the Osun State capital.
Adebooye said university authorities had decided that Ahiante be placed on indefinite suspension in line with regulations guiding studentship pending the determination of her case.
Ahiante, who hails from Edo State, was arrested by the men of Osun State Police Command after allegedly luring her social media boyfriend from Lagos to Ikire, where her boyfriend named Ifanla and his other friends robbed the victim of his phone and transferred over N1.5m out of his account.
Adebooye expressed shock at the allegation levelled against the accused saying it doesn’t tally with the university’s standards in character and learning.
The Vice Chancellor said, “As we all know, Osun State University is widely renowned for our commitment to excellence in academics and core values of the responsible, law-abiding, and highly patriotic citizenry. We remain absolutely committed to these ideals.”
