UNILAG denies rusticating student for dancing


The management of the University of Lagos (UNILAG) has denied rusticating one of its students for dancing. This is according to its spokesman, Toyin Adebule.

Recall that after a video of a student dancing with the statue of the late UNILAG Vice-Chancellor, Professor Babatunde Sofoluwe started trending, some social media users had alleged that she had been rusticated for 4 semesters over that.

The student who appeared in the video is said to be a law student. It is claimed that the video was taken about two months ago but only became public knowledge few days ago over the alleged incidence of rustication. The matter has so far attracted mixed reactions from social media users.

Adebule was emphatic that such an allegation was “false and should be disregarded” when contacted by EduCeleb on Monday.

He noted that while the university encourages good conduct among its students, there was no iota of truth in social media rumours that the lady who appeared in the video was rusticated for four semesters.

Post-UTME results out

In another development, the UNILAG authorities have released the results of the 2017/2018 Post-UTME screening test. The full list of all results for candidates who wrote the exams are available here. We had earlier told you of the appointment of a new bursar by the university’s Governing Council.


  1. Bloggers and all forms of falsified and unverified news; they won’t mind their business. All because of traffic. Rubbish.
    Meanwhile, UNILAG’s claim is still not believable until the aunty verifies too.

  2. With this denial, expect more Unilag slay queens to start twerking on that statue of a former VC.
    Disrespectful i must say, the Unilag Slay Mamas i know will be starting a a Viral #twerkonvcstatue competition very soon.
    Instead of Unilag to stand by their words as a detriment to stupid students who go to school to twerk instead of to learn. No student in Harvard University, Stanford University, or any serious university in the world would involve in such rubbish.
    It is because of student like that twerking girl studying law that no Nigerian University is among the 1000 ranking of Universities in the world. Unilag should start applying a standard to curb all this nonsense slay queen thing and make sure the school enters the first 1000ranking atleast for the first time in their life.
    Any one following Harvard University on instagram, twitter, facebook and other social media platforms will understand what a school looks like,No sentiments at all.Its all about studies, innovations, ideas, breakthroughs etc

    • With due respect, what unique innovations, ideas, inventions, advancement, breakthrough etc, have the professor brought to the university community, Lagos state, Nigeria and the world at large, since you’re comparing them with Ivy league schools. Unbelievable thoughts.

    • Ridiculous use a methodology!
      Tell me where the behaviour of students is used in ranking universities among the QS, ARWU and TheTimes Education ranking organisations?
