2 Rivers University Students Suspended Over ‘Inciting’ Facebook Posts

Two students of the Ignatius Ajuru University of
Education (IAEU) have been suspended for one academic session over their ‘inciting” posts about the institution on social media.

The students are Sunday Idongesit Okpokpo of
the Department of Political Science and Chibuzor
Remmy of the Department of Educational
Management.

The Vice-Chancellor of the university, Prof.
Ozo-Mekuri Ndimele who confirmed the suspension in a statement on Wednesday,
November 4, said Okpokpo created panic and
confusion when he took to Facebook to state
that the school’s final year examination might
be cancelled.

“Mr. Sunday Idongesit Okpokpo of the Department of Political Science, Faculty of Social
Sciences, Ignatius Ajuru University of Education, with Matriculation Number UE/2019/ B.Ed4/4505 has been suspended for one academic session 2019/2020) with immediate effect,” the statement says .

“Mr. Sunday Idongesit Okpokpo had over the
weekend created panic and confusion when he
posted on the social media cancelling the final
year examinations scheduled to commence on
Monday November 2, 2020 as well as the Matriculation Ceremony scheduled to hold on
Saturday November 7, 2020. Only the Senate of
the University has such powers.

He is to resume studies in 2020/2021 academic
session at 100 level.”

The statement said Remmy was found guilty of
inciting students to protest against the
University Authority for having only one bank on
campus. The student said the call for protest
was a ‘joke’.

“Mr. Chibuzor Remmy of the Department of
Educational Management, Faculty of Education,

B.Ed4/0205 has been suspended for one academic session (2019/2020) with immediate effect,” “Mr. Chibuzor Remmy was found guilty of
