Why we expelled law graduate – NLS
The Nigerian Law School, Bwari, FCT has explained the reason for the expulsion of the law graduate who recently completed his court attachment programme of the school, Olusegun Bello.
In a statement by its spokesman Chinedu Ukekwe yesterday, the school said the school and the legal profession do not condone the “type of behaviour constantly exhibited by Mr. Bello.”
The school had admitted the student despite receiving report of the conduct of the student for which he was rusticated from the University of Ibadan in the 2008/2009 Academic Session for “disrupting the peace and tranquility of the University Campus.”
Ukekwe stated that rather than commence his programme in 2012, the Council of Legal Education decided to admit him for the 2016/2017 academic session on probation, subject to good character.
The school regretted that the student began to disrupt activities on campus and hostel of the school sometime in March 2017 when he had a quarrel with a fellow student.
He said the student refused to receive queries issued to him on several occasions and instead petitioned the Police, United Nations and the Amnesty International accusing the school of bias.
Counsel to Bello, Hakim Bakare in a letter to the Nigerian Law School, had accused the school of “continuous threat, intimidation and unjust victimization.”
