The University of Nigeria Nsukka (UNN), says the university has set up a panel to investigate the recent viral video involving its student twerking half-clad.
Chief Okwun Omeaku, Public Relations Officer (PRO) of the university disclosed this in a statement issued and made available to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Nsukka on Tuesday.
He said the panel would investigate the circumstances surrounding the incident and noted that further action to be taken by UNN on the issue would be guided by the report of the panel.
“The management of UNN, as a result of a recent viral video in social media, involving un-clad female student twerking in front of Akapbio hostel, has set up a panel to investigate circumstances surrounding the video.
“Further action to be taken by the university on the issue will be guided by the findings and reports of the panel,” he said.
According to the PRO, preliminary findings revealed that the first-year female student, whose identity the university won’t like to disclose, is from the Department of Medical Laboratory Science.
The image maker of UNN urged the general public to disregard report in some sections of the media that the university management had suspended or expelled the affected student.
“We urge the general public to disregard reports that the affected student had been suspended or expelled.
“The public should also ignore any comment suggesting a pre-determined punishment for the student, as she will be given fair hearing by the panel,” he said.
He, however, said the university had not and would not condone acts of indecency and other morally reprehensible behaviours from its students.
“UNN degrees and certificates are awarded only to those who have been found worthy, both in character and in learning,” Omeaku said.
News Hub Mag! reports that the girl in the center of the storm who had in a post identified herself as Mirabel, a medical student of UNN said she participated in an awareness for a concert in the school on the 28th, October 2021 and competed for the sum of N30,000.
