The Lagos State University (LASU) has suspended a second year Computer Science undergraduate, (name withheld), for being in possession of a substance suspected to be Cannabis Sativa popularly known as Indian hemp.
The suspension is contained in the university’s bulletin made available to newsmen, on Sunday, in Lagos. According to the bulletin, the university’s Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Olanrewaju Fagbohun, suspended the student in line with the powers conferred on him by Section 28 of the Law establishing the institution.
It added that the suspension will subsist until the student appears before the Students’ Disciplinary Committee of the institution to defend himself.
The bulletin stated that the institution’s security men apprehended him on May 3, 2016, with the suspected substance. Adding that possession of such hard drugs contravened the rules and regulations governing the university.
“In view of this development, the student is not expected to participate in the academic activities of the university until the suspension is lifted.”
