Reactions as Babcock University disowns students in sex video scandal
By Olisemeka Obeche
Mixed reactions have greeted the leaked video of sex act by two former students of the Babcock University, even as the management of the institution had disclosed that the duo had been expelled over the act.
Orient Weekend gathered that the male and female students of the missionary school were caught on camera having sex in what appears to be a clinic. While the incident appeared to have taken place few months ago, video clip of the act was leaked on the internet last Tuesday and had since gone viral on the social media.
The Babcock University’s director of communication and marketing, Mr. Joshua Suleiman, who reacted to the scandal on Wednesday, disclosed that the unidentified persons involved in the sex tape were no longer students of the institution.
The statement read further, “The video above referred is, unfortunately, a sad commentary on the moral decadence that has assailed our society at large, a manner of behaviour that is alien and antithetical to the value of our university. It is not worth a tinge of fascination, but a ground of great concern for all.
“The boy in the video was expelled from Babcock University in February this year after investigation and the due process proved that he was into certain grievous misconducts, the acts for which the university has zero-tolerance.
“His girlfriend in the same video, until the video broke out, a third-year student of accounting in this university, after due process, she was expelled from the university for violation of university rules and regulations.
“The place, where the immoral act took place, according to her written statement, was at Saint Bridget Hospital, Abeokuta, Ogun state, where the boy has been undergoing rehabilitation for different destructive addictions. According to the girl, the incident took place in April this year during school vacation, when she visited the boy at the hospital. The act did not take place at Babcock University.
“Babcock University remains committed to the highest moral standards and would remain a standard-bearer for quality education in standard character, learning and in service to humanity. We are happy to be saddled with this challenge as an institution because; it propels us to contribute to the greatness of this nation and the security of a bright future for our children.”
