Students’ Union keep mum
The leadership of the LAUTECH Students’ Union decline comment on this development for the fear of victimisation but some students within the university believe that the action of the management was meant to silence dissenting voices.
EduCeleb.com recalls that during the said protests that led to the suspension and expulsion of the aforementioned students, the students demanded the cancellation of the Union elections over what they termed imposition.
Five among them were arrested during the protests. These persons are among those eventually suspended and expelled.
