OOU Student Expelled Over School Fees Becomes A Kidnapper So That He Can Raise Funds


The Olabisi Onabanjo University, OOU, Ago-Iwoye, Ogun State, has disowned Adesina Adeyinka, a member of a kidnap gang paraded by the police on Wednesday.
According to Mr. Adesina that he was a student of the school and ventured into kidnapping to raise funds for his school fees. He was arrested along with five other suspects by the Ogun Sate Vigilance Service while holding on to a victim for whom they had demanded a ransom of N25 million. The suspects were later handed to the police.

The Acting Vice-Chancellor of  OOU, Saburi Adesanya, confirmed that the suspect was indeed a student who struggled to pay his fees, and was later expelled for not being able to, two years ago.
Mr. Adesanya said the suspect was dismissed for his failure to pay tuition fees for two semesters, and has since not been an undergraduate of the institution.
“He is no more our student, having voluntarily withdrawn from school two years ago for his failure to pay his tuition fees for two semesters,” he said. “And the university policy is that any student who failed to pay for two semesters remain expelled.”

The 26-year-old suspect, who claimed to be a final year student of the Business Administration department, had claimed that his inability to pay his tuition fees made him join the gang as an alternative source of raising money.
The police, while parading the six suspects at the Eleweran Police Headquarters in Abeokuta, said the suspects would be arraigned in court once investigations are completed.
