No fewer than eighteen (18) students of the University of Ibadan (UI) have been punished by the management of the institution for various offences.

Two of the affected students were expelled, while five (5) were rusticated and eleven (11) others were reprimanded.

The institution’s Registrar, Mr. Olu Olukoya, in a report published in the University's Bulletin, said the students' punishment was decided at a meeting of the Central Student Disciplinary Committee (CSDC).
