Authorities of the University of Lagos are considering the suspension of one of its students, Chidinma Ojukwu, who allegedly stabbed the Chief Executive Officer of Super TV, Usifo Ataga, to death.
Sources in the university’s Senate, on Friday, said that the student’s action was contrary to the provisions of the institution’s Students Handbook and would be suspended.
A professor at the university, who spoke on condition of anonymity, told The PUNCH that “there is no two ways, she will be suspended.”
He added that the suspect would at least be suspended pending the outcome of the police investigation.
A dean in one of the faculties in the university also noted that the student would not be able to escape suspension based on the alleged behaviour.
He said, “We don’t just suspend like that. A committee will examine the situation, including the video where she confessed before taking a decision. But I do not think she can escape suspension.’’
Chidinma, a 300-level student in UNILAG’s Department of Mass Communication, had on Thursday confessed to stabbing Ataga to death while being paraded at the state police command headquarters, Ikeja, Lagos State.
