February 07, (THEWILL) – The management of Aliko Dangote University of Science and Technology, Wudil, Kano State, has queried and suspended an academic staff of the institution for allegedly maltreating some students.
This is contained in a statement issued to newsmen on Wednesday, by the university’s Deputy Registrar, Information and Public Relations, Sa’idu Abdullahi Nayaya.
Nayaya said the institution’s decision followed a video clip that went viral on social media and some traditional media platforms depicting “physical assault/corporal punishment meted out on some students by an academic staff in a lecture hall.”
“To that effect, the management of the university immediately queried and suspended the staff in question and forwarded the case to the Senior Staff Disciplinary Committee for further action.
“These measures are taken swiftly to arrest the situation and bring justice.
“The management is hereby assuring parents and guardians and the general public that the welfare and safety of the students are topmost and any breach by whosoever will not be tolerated and go unpunished.
“The management is also assuring that it will continue to provide conducive learning conditions for the students for them to graduate successfully at the end of their studies,” Nayaya added.
