"Any Lecturer Found Guilty Of Assault Would Definitely Pay For It"- Vice Dean DSA
Following the reportage of several cases of physical assaults by lecturers over the past few weeks, the Vice Dean of the Division of Students Affairs of the Obafemi Awolowo University, Dr B.S Afolabi, has claimed that investigations have commenced on the cases and any lecturer found guilty in any of the cases would be made to take responsibility for his or her actions. He also warned students against aggravating lecturers as different people had different temperaments and the lecturers too were human. He also cited the case of students assaulting lecturers in times past, attributing the current state of the Union as a result of one of such events.
Speaking to students earlier today, Saturday, 22nd October 2016 at the Great Ife Students Summit organised by the Association of Campus Journalists, OAU, Dr Afolabi also shed more light on some of the issues surrounding the planned meeting of the Acting Vice-Chancellor, Professor Anthony Elujoba. He stated that when the Vice-Chancellor stated that he would be meeting with the students, it was through their representatives. He however further stated that although the Acting Vice-Chancellor was very much interested in reinstating the Students Union, he had not had time to meet the elected representatives due to his very busy schedule.
Dr Afolabi then made it known to the students present that he would always be available to students who need information on any issue regarding the University.
