Salaudeen, a student in the Department of Microbiology before his expulsion, beat a female lecturer Mrs Rahmat Zakariyau.
“He has 48 days to appeal against the verdict to the Vice-Chancellor in case he feels dissatisfied with the decision,” University of Ilorin’s spokesman Kunle Akogun said.
The student has since been arrested by the police.
Salaudeen was informed of his dismissal from the university by the University’s registrar.
“You will recall that you appeared before the Student Disciplinary Committee (SDC) to defend yourself in respect of an allegation of misconduct leveled against you,” the registrar said in a letter to Salaudeen.
“After due consideration of all evidences before it, the Committee was convinced beyond any reasonable doubt that the allegation of misconduct has been established against you. It has accordingly recommended to the Vice-Chancellor, who in exercise of the power conferred on him, has directed that you Salaudeen, Waliu Aanuoluwa be expelled from the University.
“Accordingly, you are hereby expelled from the University with immediate effect.
