According to a statement released by the Registrar of the institution, Mrs Magaret Omosule, the students’ membership was confirmed by a police investigation.
She said; “After the investigation of the suspected students by the Nigeria Police, the university on Aug. 20 received a detailed report of the police findings.
“In the report, it was confirmed that six students of the university had admitted their membership of proscribed groups, thus breaching their Matriculation Oath, Code of Conduct and other pertinent University regulations.
“Accordingly, and in accordance with the relevant statutes, the students have been suspended pending the outcome of investigations by the appropriate Students’ Disciplinary Committee,” Omosule added.
The suspended students are:
