Why two students were suspended- UniAbuja – Punch Newspapers

The University of Abuja, Saturday confirmed the suspension of two yet-to-be named students from the institution.

The school’s Director of Public Affairs, Dr. Habib Yakoob who spoke in an exclusive interview with our correspondent on Friday evening noted that the two students wrote inciteful messages capable of disrupting the peace and tranquillity of the institution.

The write up, according to findings by our correspondent came after the management of the school announced the decision to increase school fees.

Our correspondent learnt that the two students issued a statement calling for protest and signed the statement on behalf of the President and

General Secretary of the Students’ Union Government.
Shedding further light on the matter, Dr.Yakoob noted that the students committed fraud by impersonating the SUG executives.

He further noted that investigations were going on.

“Two students were suspected to have issued and circulated a write-up purportedly in the name of the SUG President and Speaker (who has disowned the write-up promptly). This is impersonation/ forgery.

“The content of the said write-up was quite inciteful and capable of upsetting the peace and tranquil environment that the University has been known for; Preliminary investigations implicated the two, hence the decision to SUSPEND them pending the full determination of the matter.

“Please Note that they weren’t suspended because they complained about increment of fees. Thank you.”
