UNILAG Acknowledges Chidinma As Student, Sets Up Committee To Look Into Her Case

LAGOS JULY 1ST (NEWSRANGERS)-Authorities of the University of Lagos (UNILAG), have acknowledged the studentship of Chidinma Ojukwu, a 300 level female student arrested for stabbing Usifo Ataga to death in Lagos.

Vice-Chancellor of UNILAG, Prof. Oluwatoyin Ogundipe, who confirmed Chidinma as a student of the institution, said,

“Yes she is a student of UNILAG, either full or part-time. We cannot deny the fact that she is our student.”

Prof. Ogundipe, who spoke at the pre-convocation briefing, yesterday, said UNILAG follows due process in handling such issues.

“Other vice-chancellors can say I have suspended a student. But in UNILAG, it is not so; we follow due process before making decisions. We cannot try what other universities are doing.”

Ogundipe confirmed that the university has set up a committee to look into the issue and will implement the recommendations soonest.

The Lagos State Police Command recently paraded Chidinma, a 21-year-old Mass Communication of the University of Lagos, over the murder of the Chief Executive Officer of Super TV.

Chidinma and Ataga lodged in a service apartment at the Lekki area of Lagos State and the corpse of the latter was found in the room the next day.
