Kimberly Ofili, a 300 level student of European language faculty of Art, French department at the University of Lagos, who was videoed twerking on the statue of late Vice Chancellor, Prof. Babatunde Sofoluwe of the institution, has reacted to the rumours of her rustication.
The Unilag student who sounded upset, has come out to say that she does not see any reason why the news was reported since the school did not announce her rustication. In her words;
“Was there ever a time Unilag announced they rusticated me? So if you didn’t hear from Unilag that I was rusticated, I don’t see the reason why it is an authentic news and for them to even come out to say they never rusticated any student what exactly do you want me to say about it. And I told you I am writing an exam and I don’t know what else you want me to say again. The school authority has already said what they want to say, if I am rusticated I don’t think I will be writing exams”
Ofili’s twerking video went viral last week due to reports that claimed she was rusticated for dancing with the statue of Prof. Babatunde Sofoluwe.
The Institution on Monday, October 9th debunked the news in a post on its Facebook page saying the University is not that mean.
The management therefore urged the students and general public to ignore the rumours.
