The University of Ilorin has expelled Salaudeen Waliyu, popularly known as “Captain Walz” the final-year student who assaulted a female lecturer of the institution.
This was made known by Kunle Akogun, the spokesperson of the institution.
You would recall that “Captain Walz” had attacked his lecturer identified as Mrs Rahmat Zakariyau in her office after she refused to cover him up following his failure to embark on the mandatory students’ industrial Work experience scheme (SIWES), which is a pre-requisite for his graduation.
Akogun said Waliyu was arraigned before the student disciplinary committee where he was found guilty of assault.
He however said Waliyu has 48 days to appeal against the verdict to the vice-chancellor of the varsity in case he feels dissatisfied with the decision.
The expulsion letter issued to Salaudeen Waliyu by the university registrar read: “You will recall that you appeared before the student disciplinary committee (SDC) to defend yourself in respect of an allegation of misconduct leveled against you.”
“After due consideration of all evidence before it, the committee was convinced beyond any reasonable doubt that the allegation of misconduct has been established against you.”
The letter further read: “It has accordingly recommended to the Vice-Chancellor, who in the exercise of the power conferred on him, has directed that you Salaudeen, Waliu Aanuoluwa be expelled from the university.”
“Accordingly, you are hereby expelled from the University with immediate effect.
“You are required to submit forthwith, all University property in your custody including your Student Identity Card to the Dean of Student Affairs or his representative and keep off the campus.”
“In case you are dissatisfied with this decision, you are free to appeal to the University Council through the Dean, Faculty of Life Sciences to the vice-chancellor within forty-eight (48) days of the date of this letter.”
Reports have it that “Captain Walz” has since been handed over to the police for further necessary action.
