Kano Varsity Suspends Student For Proposing To Female On Campus

A 200 level student of department of Computer Science, Al-Istiqama University, Sumaila, Kano, Abdullahi Juli Mansur, on Tuesday was suspended for immoral behaviour on campus.

Mansur’s suspension follows his public show of affection to a female school mate on campus, an open demonstration of love considered as immoral by the school authority.

Mansur was seen on a short video clip that went viral on social media when he attempted to extend a red bouquet to a female student in the school premises.

Although the supposed admirer did not to accept the offer of the ‘lover boy’ in public, the mild drama however attracted attention of other students who lighted up the atmosphere with cheers.

Barely 24 hours after the video clip occupied the cyberspace, the management of the private university issued a notice of suspension of the “lover boy” for constituting what they believed was an immoral act on campus.

In an Internal Memo with Ref. no. AUS/REG/54, dated 14th May, 2024, the university management directed the suspension of the 200 level of Computer science till further notice.

The memo signed by Sani A. Usman, a deputy registrar, said a disciplinary committee has also been constituted to further examined the development.

“This is to intimate you that Abdullahi Juli Mansur a student of department of computer science, with registration no. AUS/SCC/COM/22/1018 was suspended for displaying improper behavior on campus,” the notice read.

A source close to the university management said the decision was to protect the guiding principles of the institution.

The source said the suspension was initiated because the suspended student had been warned against similar behaviours.

“This is not the first time the boy has been found with that character. We have two previous cases and the university particularly invited the student but he refused to take to caution,” the source said.

“And as you know the university is faith based and such manner is against the principle of Islam and hausa culture. So that was what actually necessitated the suspension.”
