Varsity final year student expelled for abusing Gov Udom on Facebook

277, Ekpo Iniobong

A 500-level student of the Akwa Ibom State University, Ekpo Iniobong, accused of trolling Gov. Emmanuel Udom has been expelled by the institution.

Iniobong drew the wrath of the institution authority allegedly at the instigation of the state government for pouring vitriol on Gov. Udom in a Facebook post.

However, the dismissed student is not taking the matter in his stride, according to

Instead, Iniobong is hell bent on being reinstated and is pursuing his reinstatement both legally and otherwise.

 “In January, they pasted my picture on the school gate without any indication that they had found me guilty. I got a third invitation. When I rushed to the meeting, they told me that I was not supposed to be invited that it was a wrong invitation. I continued to attend classes, because they did not give me a proper letter of suspension. I have taken my first semester 500-level exams already. My last meeting with them was on March 3. They didn’t prove in any way that there was any defamation of character. I got an expulsion letter on June 15, 2021,” the paper quoted him as saying.
