Students of the University of Ilorin, Kwara State, are now subjected to heavy disciplinary action as punishment for examination malpractice.

This was the fate of 19 students, who were caught in examination malpractice and theft.


The school’s Director of Corporate Affairs, Kunle Akogun, gave a hint on this development in a statement issued on Monday.

Akogun highlighted the institution’s unwavering commitment to upholding academic and moral standards.


According to Akogun, the decisive action taken against the students was based on the recommendations of the Students’ Disciplinary Committee.

The decision was taken during its 220th and 221st meetings, which were approved by the Vice-Chancellor, Wahab Egbewole (SAN).



The range of offences committed by the students include misconduct, theft, examination malpractices, hostel bed-space racketeering.

They also engaged in extortion, beating a fellow student, admission racketeering, and assault.

The penalties imposed reflect the severity of their actions.

Consequences for such actions range from rustication for a semester or an academic session to outright expulsion from the university.


The students affected by this disciplinary measure are enrolled at various study levels, including the 100, 200, 300, and 400 levels.
