The Vice Chancellor of the University of Calabar, Professor Florence Obi, has approved the suspension of four students from the institution identified in a viral video and found guilty of engaging in an illegal act of water ritual on a fellow student.

The announcement of the suspension is contained in a statement signed on Saturday in Calabar by Mr. Gabriel Egbe, Registrar of the institution.

Egbe said that the crime was carried out by the four students during the last enrollment ceremony of the institution on December 2, 2022.

Egbe mentioned that the affected students include Stephen Usen, a student in the Accounting Department, year 4, and Aniefiok Idorenyin, a student in Computer Science, year 2.

Others are Miracle Adeyemi, a Political Science student, year 2, and Blessing Queen, a Genetics and Biotechnology student, year 4.

“Management deliberated extensively on the GBV committee report and the robustness of its findings, and accordingly ordered the affected students to proceed with suspension beginning in the 2020/2021 academic session.

“The deans, heads of departments and other relevant officials of the university have been entrusted with the duty to fully comply with the given directive,” Egbe said.
