No fewer than 24 students of Bayero University (BUK) Kano, have been expelled from the university over falsification of their entry qualifications.
Many of the students were said to be in their final year.
The spokesperson for the university, Lamara Garba, disclosed this in a statement in Kano.
The statement, however, said 18 students would be re-invited to appear before the Senate Committee on Entry Qualification Irregularities, to give them fair hearing.
It said that the Director, Examinations, Admissions and Records (DEAR), Amina Umar-Abdullahi, had explained that their expulsion followed the adoption of the report submitted by the Senate Committee on Entry Qualification Irregularities.
It added that the action of the expelled students contravened category 3.6 and 3.8(a) of the DEAR.
A breakdown of the expelled students indicated that 10 were of the Faculty of Education, nine from Faculty of Social and Management Sciences while Faculties of Law, Agriculture, Science, Engineering and Arts and Islamic Studies had one each.
It said that the university would continue to screen the credentials of all students to ensure that they meet all criteria for admission.
