The University of Lagos student, whose video of her twerking on the statue of late Vice Chancellor, Prof. Babatunde Sofoluwe of the institution went viral, has reacted to her rustication rumour.
Kimberly Ofili, a 300 level student of European language faculty of Art, French department has said she does not see reason why the news was reported since the school did not announce her rustication.
Ofili who sounded upset when asked to comment about the rumour of her rustication is quoted:
“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 danced video went viral last week followed by reports that claimed she was rusticated for dancing sensuously with the statue of Prof. Babatunde Sofoluwe.
In reaction to the reports, the Institution on Monday, October 9 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 rumour.
She got rusticated from Unilag for 4 semesters for this. Thoughts? pic.twitter.com/eUFHhcSx63
