Just recently, a video of Babcock University student assaulting a fellow student for using his pair of slippers without his permission broke the internet.
However, the institution in a statement by its Director of Marketing and Communications, Joshua Suleiman, said;
“The attention of Babcock University Administration has been drawn to a recent video clip on social media showing a scuffle between two 100-level students of the institution.”
“Preliminary investigations revealed that the fight resulted from lack of restraint by a student who alleged his roommate of using his pair of slippers without his permission/consent.”
“With our zero tolerance for bullying, and physical violence of any form, the university administration finds this conduct abominable and most unacceptable and is, therefore, taking appropriate steps to address it accordingly.”
“The university also condemns the conduct of the students who, rather than separating the two students fighting, and or reporting same to the authorities immediately, instead concentrated on video-recording the incident.”
“As an institution of conscientiousness, Babcock University will continue to create a safe, as well as upholds its values of mutual respect and peaceful co-existence among our students. We are committed to pursuing our goal to nurture God-fearing leaders for Nigeria and beyond.”
