He said , “The affected students were not up to 100 , I don ’t know the specific number until I get to school on Monday but I am sure they are not up to 100 .

“The students , who had cases of indiscipline and had faced the disciplinary panel of the university, were served with letters containing the appropriate sanctions for the offences they had committed as contained in the university students handbook .

“The letters sent to some of the affected students ( through SMS) is to ensure that the students have the opportunity of fair hearing as it is our practice when facing the disciplinary committee .” (PUNCH)
