About 84 students of the Lagos State University, LASU, have been issued warning letters for what the institution described as indecent dressing while another student running for the Students Union Government, SUG, president was disqualified for failure to clear himself of allegation of cultism.
The sanctioned students were 24 students of the faculty of Management Science, 18 from the faculty of sciences, 11 each from the faculties of Education and Social Sciences and 4 students from the faculty of communication.
It was reported that the Department of Students Affair, DSA, of LASU gave the letter to the students for going against the dress code of the institution.
The Nation reports that a 300Level Economic Education Department student, Yusuf Wasiu Omolola aspiring to be the school number one student presidential candidate was disqualified for concealing his suspension at the Federal College of Education, Akoka.
The LASU authorities claimed that Yusuf was suspended from the college for participating in cultism in the year 2012 and has failed to provide documents to clear him from the allegation.
They added that Yusuf also failed to complete the security screening form for candidates running for the SUG seats.
The DSA director said, “Mr. Yusuf, Wasiu Omotola was given several opportunities to redeem himself by voluntarily and honourably opting out of the LASUSU presidential race.
“There was no documentary evidence to prove he has been cleared of his allegation and suspension from the college.”
“The students have been magnanimously pardoned by the university authority and were warned to desist from the act of indecent dressing, henceforth or face disciplinary action.”
