Scores have been reportedly killed in a fuel tanker explosion at the Amoke village of Apa Local Government Area in Benue State.

Crisis is currently looming at the Ladoke Akintola University of Technology (LAUTECH) Ogbomoso over alleged humiliation of a female Muslim student.

Tribunepoint Weekly gathered on Thursday that a female Muslim student whose identity has not been revealed was allegedly humiliated by the Dean of Faculty of Nursing for wearing Hijab (a veil usually worn by female Muslims to cover their head).

The incident according to a video obtained by Tribunepoint Weekly occurred on Wednesday when the board of Open and Distance Learning Programme addressed the newly admitted nursing students.

It was gathered that the Dean of the Faculty, Professor Ajibade Lawal while addressing the students asked one of the students who was wearing a Hijab to leave the class.

Lawal had earlier said that scrub is the only approved uniform for student nurses.

He maintained that any other form of dress must not be put atop or underneath the scrub.

The action of the Dean angered the students who vowed to disrupt academic activities in the institution today.

The students who asked Lawal to apologize in public, described the action of the lecturer as a violation of the rights of the female Muslim students.

As at Thursday morning, Tribunepoint Weekly gathered that students of the institution are currently protesting at the entrance of the university.

Public Relations Officer of LAUTECH, Mr. Akin Fadeyi when contacted, confirmed the incident.

Fadeyi, in a statement made available to DAILY POST Thursday morning, noted that the case was being handled by the university management.

He said, “This is to inform stakeholders that the unfortunate issues of yesterday as it affects Professor Bayo Lawal Ajibade and a particular Muslim woman is being handled by Management of the Ladoke Akintola University of Technology (LAUTECH), Ogbomoso, Oyo State.

“Ag. Vice-Chancellor, Professor Mojeed Olaide Liasu already mandated the Provost of the College of Health Sciences, Professor Adeyemi, to supervise a high powered investigation into the matter.

“Management is, therefore, imploring students particularly, to maintain peace as they go about their duties on the University premises to allow investigation go on.

“The Ag. Vice-Chancellor has assured that nobody will be shielded”.
