The management of the University of Nigeria Nsukka, on Wednesday, denied suspending one of its students seen dancing half-clad in a viral video.
The video involved a first-year student of the university, who twerked half-clad in front of Akpabio Hostel in a bid to win a dancing competition.
It attracted reactions on social media platforms, with many suggesting that the student had been suspended by the university.
The university’s Public Relations Officer, Okwun Omeaku, in a statement on Wednesday said the institution’s preliminary findings revealed that she is a first-year student in Department of Medical Laboratory Science.
The university insisted that it does not “condone acts of indecency and other morally reprehensible behaviour from our students. Our degrees and certificates are awarded only to those who have been found worthy in character and in learning.
Against the backdrop of mixed reactions on the video, it is important to clarify that the university has neither suspended the student nor pronounced any punishment on account of the incident.”
The release stated however, that the management had set up a panel to investigate the circumstances surrounding the incident, adding that further action would be guided by the report of the panel.
