The management of the University of Lagos (UNILAG) is yet to react to the murder of the Chief Executive Officer of Super TV, Usifo Ataga by one of its students, Chidinma Ojukwu.

However, it was learned that the institution’s authorities are considering suspending the 21-year-old Mass Communication student as stated in the university’s handbook.

Speaking with The PUNCH on Friday, the Head, Mass Communication Department of the university, Joseph Tejumaiye, said the student could be suspended or expelled.

He said, “That is what is in the handbook of the university. I am very sure that the school will implement that to the letter.

“I want you to know that certificates are awarded on the basis of learning and character. It is not based only on learning.

“She allegedly committed an offence against the state. Criminals are everywhere. It is just unfortunate that she is just our student.”

A professor at the university also said that the undergraduate will be suspended for violating one of the rules and regulations of the institution.

The scholar added that the suspect would at least be suspended pending the outcome of the police investigation.

He said: “There are no two ways, she will be suspended.”

Also, a Dean in one of the faculties in the university also noted that the student would not be able to escape suspension based on the alleged behaviour.

He said, “We don’t just suspend like that. A committee will examine the situation, including the video where she confessed before taking a decision. But I do not think she can escape suspension.’
