The management of the University of Ilorin has expelled 14 students of the institution, including 500 level students, for different examination offenses.

In a statement in Ilorin, the university's spokesperson, Kunle Akogun, disclosed that the students were expelled for various established cases of examination malpractice.

According to him, the management of the institution approved their expulsion following the recommendations of the Students' Disciplinary Committee at its 219th meeting held between January 10 and 11, 2024.

Akogun said the affected students include 400, 500, 300 level and 100 level students.

"The affected students were from Faculties/Departments of Agriculture/Aquaculture and Fisheries; Agriculture/Agricultural Extension and Rural Development; Arts/Linguistics and Nigerian Languages.
"Some were also from the Communication and Information Sciences (CIS)/Library and Information Science, CIS/ Telecommunication Science; Education/Adult and Primary Education Studies.
"Others were from the Department of Engineering and Tech/Electrical and Electronic Engineering; Engineering and Tech/ Materials and Metallurgical Engineering as well as Life Science/Zoology,''

Varsity spokesperson said.

He, therefore, urged students to shun practices that were inimical to their academic progress, stressing that the university would not condone or spare those who indulge themselves in such illicit attitudes.
