The Lagos State University has suspended a second year Computer Science undergraduate, (name withheld), for being in possession of a substance suspected to be Cannabis Sativa (marijuana).

The suspension is contained in the university’s bulletin made available to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Sunday in Lagos. ‎

The bulletin said the university’s Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Olanrewaju Fagbohun, suspended the student in line with the powers conferred on him by Section 28 of the Law establishing the institution‎.

According to the bulletin, the suspension will subsist until he appears before the Students’ Disciplinary Committee of the university to defend himself.

It said the institution’s security men apprehended him‎ on May 3, 2016, with the suspected substance.

The bulletin said that possession of such hard drugs contravened the rules and regulations governing the university.

``In view of this development, the student is not expected to participate in the academic activities of the university until the suspension is lifted.’’
