Authorities of the Delta State University (DELSU) have expelled 109 students for misconduct and examination malpractices.
It would be recalled that six months ago the institution expelled some students for misconduct and examination malpractices.
liveschoolnews.org grapevine gathered that some were rusticated for two to six semesters, some expelled and the results of some were withdrawn.
This is contained in a joint report by the two groups of mobile examination malpractice disciplinary committees set up for regular and part-time programmes for the 2014/2015 academic session.
According to the report, some of the students were caught with materials prohibited in examination halls, forgery of school fees receipt, fake identity cards and sheets of papers containing answers, which are known as microchips.
While some of the students were rusticated for impersonation, others, who were caught for malpractice during their final degree examinations, had their results withdrawn. Freshers caught for malpractice were expelled.
The Vice-Chancellor, Prof Victor Peretomode, said he administration frowned at the actions that could compromise the standard of the school, saying the management introduced stringent disciplinary measures to ensure that only students who can defend their results are graduated from the school.
Some students, who spoke with our correspondent, hailed the development, noting that it would improve the reading culture of students as they are now aware of the punishment for engaging in malpractice.
