Six undergraduate students of the Federal University of Technology (FUTA) are to be prosecuted by police in Ondo State for allegedly assaulting a fellow female student of the institution.
Findings by campusbiz revealed that Popoola Olaniyi, Faith Oluwadare, Jessica Nandi, Emmanuella Ajuwon, Emmanuel Taiwo and Cecilia Alao allegedly brutalised Boluwatife Adekunle for reportedly gossiping about one of them in one of the private halls of residence outside the school.
The management of the institution had also placed an indefinite suspension on the six students. It was made known that a disciplinary committee had been set up by the institution to look into the case while the students would miss the second semester examination which began on Monday.
Femi Joseph, the state’s police spokesman, stated that the Commissioner of police, Undie Adie had ordered the Divisional Police in charge of the area to take up the matter.
“We have watched the disgusting video of the incident and the CP has ordered that the six students should be prosecuted. So, whatever the university does on the matter, the students will still face prosecution.
“What the students did to their fellow student was bad and they can’t go scot-free. That is why we are taking up and we will get them,” Joseph stated.
