Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU) Suspends Student Union Leaders


Authorities of the Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, Osun State, have suspended three student union leaders for allegedly assaulting a professor. The affected student leaders are; the SU President, Omotayo Akande, who bagged six semesters (three years); Public Relations Officer, Emmanuel Ojedokun, four semesters (two years); and the Secretary General, Seun Oketooto; four semesters (two years).

The union leaders are all final year students and would have started their examinations in the next two months.

The students however have a different reason for the suspension, saying their leaders were suspended due to the recent agitation for better welfare conditions on campus and not the alleged assault.
