Kunle Adebajo, A 500 level student of the Faculty of Law, University of Ibadan, has been suspended for two semesters by the Institution’s management over an article he wrote in 2016 about poor hostel facilities in the school.
Adebajo’s article entitled “UI: The irony of fashionable rooftops and awful interiors” which was published in The Guardian angered the University management as a result of which he was suspended. He is supposed to have proceeded to Law School but the suspension has put that dream on hold.
In a swift reaction, the Free Campus Press Movement, a body of campus journalists from different universities in Nigeria released a statement on Friday urging the university management to rescind their decision.
“While we are not contesting the powers of the university to discipline Students, we are very much concerned that the institution management found it very convenient to suspend Kunle Adebajo for his investigative feature titled “UI: The irony of fashionable rooftops and awful interiors” published in Guardian Newspaper,” the statement read.
