Hours after the video of the assault on 100-level female student of Ecotourism and Wildlife Management student went viral, the Students Union Government of the Federal University of Technology, Akure has reacted to the sad incident.
The union disclosed that the female student who was assaulted by four students identified as Bolu is currently undergoing treatment and necessary investigations have been initiated.
WITHIN NIGERIA had earlier reported that it was a disgraceful show of physical and muscular muscle at the Federal University of Technology, Akure (FUTA) as some students ganged up to molest, physically abuse and beat up a 100-level female student of the institution.
However, the Federal University of Technology Akure, FUTA has suspended the students involved in the bullying of a female student in one of the off campus hostels on Saturday November 16,2019 even as it continues with investigations into the circumstances that led to the odious and unfortunate act.
This was contained in a statement signed and made available to journalists by the Deputy Director of Corporate Commission of the institution, Adegbenro Adebanjo.
The statement reads thus:
The University deplores such behavior and reiterates that all those found to be culpable will be visited with the full weight of the law under the extant rules and regulations governing Students behavior and conduct off and on the campus at the conclusion of investigation being carried out by the Students Affairs Division.
The University Management is providing medical and counseling support for the affected student.
The University reiterates its abhorrence of any action or behavior by students that are inimical to the well-being of others and will continue to sanction students who run foul of its rules and regulations.
For the avoidance of doubt only students who are worthy in learning and character can lay claim to and be addressed as FUTA students.
