The Bayero University, Kano (BUK) has expelled sixty-three students and rusticated thirteen other students for a year for their involvement in various forms of examination malpractice.
The development was contained in a statement signed by the Director, Examination, Admission and Records (DEAR), Amina Umar-Abdullahi and was issued to pressmen in Kano over the weekend.
According to the DEAR Director, the suspension and rustication of the affected students followed a recommendation earlier submitted by the Senate Committee on Examinations Misconduct and Leakages which was approved last Wednesday at the 374th meeting of the institution.
The Director made it known that the expelled students included 10 from the School of PG Studies, 10 from the School of Continuing Education and seven each from the Faculties of Basic Medical Sciences and Computer Science.
She stated that the Senate had equally directed that nineteen other students of the institution be served with warning letters for other infractions.
