According to media reports, the University of Ilorin (UNILORIN) says no fewer than 108 fresh students of the institution were expelled for gaining admission through dubious means.
The institution’s Vice Chancellor, Prof. AbdulGaniyu Ambali, disclosed this on Monday in Ilorin while exchanging views with the Commissioner of Police in Kwara, Mr Sam Okaula, who visited him.
Ambali told the commissioner that due to stable academic calendar and culture of excellence prevalent in the university, the pressure to secure admission into the institution was high.
“This result in some candidates seeking illegal and unauthorised ways to gain admission into the university,” he said.
Ambali assured the commissioner of the university’s continuous cooperation by readily offering the police useful information required in the course of their work.
