Two students of Rivers state University of education suspended for making inciting comments on social media

Two students of the Ignatius Ajuru University of Education (IAEU) have been suspended for one academic session over their ‘inciting” posts about the institution on social media.

The students are Sunday Idongesit Okpokpo of
the Department of Political Science and Chibuzor Remmy of the Department of Educational Management.

The Vice-Chancellor of the university, Prof.
Ozo-Mekuri Ndimele who confirmed the suspension in a statement on Wednesday,
November 4, said Okpokpo created panic and
confusion when he took to Facebook to state
that the school’s final year examination might
be cancelled.

“Mr Sunday Idongesit Okpokpo of the Department of Political Science, Faculty of Social Sciences, Ignatius Ajuru University of Education, with Matriculation Number UE/2019/ B.Ed4/4505 has been suspended for one academic session 2019/2020) with immediate effect,” the statement says.

“Mr Sunday Idongesit Okpokpo had over the
weekend created panic and confusion when he posted on the social media cancelling the final year examinations scheduled to commence on Monday, November 2, 2020, as well as the Matriculation Ceremony scheduled to hold on Saturday, November 7, 2020. Only the Senate of the University has such powers.

He is to resume studies in 2020/2021 academic
session at 100 level.”

The statement said Remmy was found guilty of inciting students to protest against the
University Authority for having only one bank on campus. The student said the call for protest was a ‘joke’.

“Mr Chibuzor Remmy of the Department of
Educational Management, Faculty of Education, the Ignatius Ajuru University of Education with Matriculation Number UE/2018/EDUMAT/ B.Ed4/0205 has been suspended for one academic session (2019/2020) with immediate effect,” “Mr Chibuzor Remmy was found guilty of
inciting students with his social media post.

He had called out students on that post to protest on Wednesday, November 4, 2020, against the University Authority for having only one bank on campus.

He is to resume school in the 2020/2021 academic session. He is not to be seen on any of the three campuses unless on the invitation.
