Babcock student lands in trouble for beating roommate
A Babcock University student has landed in trouble hours after a video of him beating a junior roommate was shared on social media.
The University management reacted to the video and tagged it abominable and unacceptable.
A copy of the video seen by EduCeleb.com shows a 100 level student being assaulted by his senior colleague while others looked on.
This has caused outrage on social media after it went viral.
In a statement on Wednesday by Joshua Suleiman, Babcock’s marketing and communications director, the institution stated it has carried out a preliminary investigation into the development, which it also condemned.
Describing the conduct of the students as abominable, the university management also frowned at witnesses who filmed the fight rather than help quell the dispute.
“Investigations reveal that the fight resulted from lack of restraint by a student who alleged his roommate of using his pair of slippers without his permission/consent,” the statement read.
“With our zero tolerance for bullying and physical violence of any kind, the university administration finds this conduct abominable and most unacceptable and is, therefore, taking appropriate steps to address it accordingly.
“The university also condemns the conduct of the student who, rather than separating the two students fighting, and or reporting same to the authorities immediately, instead, concentrated on video-recording the incident.
“Babcock University will continue to create a safe environment, as well as uphold its values of mutual respect and peaceful coexistence among our students.
“We are committed to pursuing our goal to nurture and raise God-fearing leaders for Nigeria and beyond.”For information on Press Releases, Photos, Promotional Events and Adverts, Please message us on WhatsApp via (+234) 09052129258, 08124662170 or send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
