Investigation into the case of a 400 level student who, in a viral video, ascribed her academic success to ‘aggressive malpractice’ is still on course, the University of Benin has assured.
This was in reaction to reports making the rounds that the female Microbiology student, Peace Ufuoma, has been asked to resit her exams from 200 level to final year as punishment for her actions.
An official of the University told CAMPUS GIST on Wednesday that Management is following due process on the matter and was yet to receive reports from the Panel set up to investigate the case.
The University Management, therefore, asked the general public to discountenance the report that the 400 level student had already been penalized, insisting it was fake news.
“The general public is advised to discountenance reports making the rounds that Peace Ufuoma has been asked to resit her exams from 200 level to final year as it’s FAKE NEWS.
“The University of Benin (UNIBEN) is following due process and Panels set up to investigate the development are yet to send reports to Management,” the official told CAMPUS GIST on phone.
The University Management had last week set up a Panel to probe all the results of the student after she wore a sign out shirt with the inscription “aggressive malpractice brought me this far” during her final year signing out ritual.
