Hijab Crisis: Kwara missionary schools reject hijab approval by Government

Students Didn’t Beat up any Lecturer on Campus – University of Abuja (UNIABUJA) Management
The attention of the University Management has been drawn to a short viral video on Thursday 25th February 2021 in which students of the University were purportedly beating up a lecturer for asking them to submit their scripts just 45 minutes into a three-hour examination.
The University authority wishes to state categorically that no such incident occurred on the University campus. In other words, none of the UofA lecturers was beaten up by students.
Our analysis of the immature video reveals that the students were milling around possibly an invigilator (who is not even clearly shown in the clip) in an attempt to submit their papers after the time’s up was announced.
The University affirms that our lecturers are well-cultured and trained to respect both students and time, and so could not have stopped on-going exam when time’s not up.
Our advice to the media, especially credible ones among them, is that in this era of widespread misinformation, information as well as its sources should be carefully processed and their credibility established before being shared to the public.
Thanks for reading, kindly share.
