It however admitted that the university “recently experienced a very common incident of unruly behaviour by some students who have appeared befor the institution’s Students’ Disciplinaty Committee, leading to the expulsion and suspension of students found guilty, given the University’s highly cherised charcater of a faith-based Christian institution governed by rules and regulations in conformity with Christian Ethics and commitment to raising Godly intellectuals”.
The statement reads further: “In this wise, the University insists that its students be disciplined, well dressed, punctual at lectures and worship service, among other requirements as dictated in the institution’s Students’ Handbook on rules and regulations.
