The document indicated that the suspension had been approved by the Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Olanrewaju Fagbohun, based on the recommendation of the Students’ Disciplinary Committee.
“The Vice-Chancellor has approved the recommendation of the Students Disciplinary Committee that Adeyemi Temitope, with Matriculation Number 100832003, be suspended.
