The management of the University of Ilorin has expelled Mathew Balogun, with matriculation number 14/25OD062, over alleged sexual assault. 

According to a bulletin issued on Monday by the academic institution, Mr Balogun was expelled after he was found guilty of an accusation of sexual assault committed against vulnerable students and admission seekers into the university.

The bulletin said that the expulsion alert was contained in a letter by UNILORIN’s student affairs unit with Reference number UIL/SAU/SAO/2024/01, titled, “Re: Allegation of Misconduct against Balogun, Mathew Adeboye.”

The deputy registrar of student affairs, Moses Opaleke, in a letter, recounted that ”the social media was set agog with the report of sexual molestation by Balogun.

“Subsequently, he was invited to appear before the Student Disciplinary Committee on October 16, 2023, which he did not honour.

“At the second sitting of October 19, 2023, of the Student Disciplinary Committee, when he showed up, he admitted to the second charge against him for misconduct.

“He admitted that he took unlawful and undue advantages of vulnerable students and admission seekers. 

“This is under the pretence that he could influence their results and or offer them admissions into the university, contrary to the Clauses of Students’ Information and Regulations Handbook.”

According to the bulletin, Balogun received his expulsion letter on October 25, 2023.
