UNILORIN Breaks Silence Over Reaction Trailing Female Student Encounter With Security Personnel

The University of Ilorin, Unilorin, has broken its silence over the mixed reactions trailing the outburst of one of its students, tanwa who was grilled by the security personnel of the institution over her choice of dress on Wednesday.

Displeased by her ‘horrible’ experience in the hands of the security, Tanwa took to the bird app, Twitter to express her displeasure.

The tweep, @tannwa, tweeted “This is how I left home for school then Unilorin ruined my day check next post.”

Barely six hours that she posted her experience with ‘before and after’ media including video and pictures, the post has since gathered about 765 comments, 873 retweets and 4.6k likes.

Meanwhile, some Tweeps have lashed out at the school while others have been playing the defensive roles.

According to @Yoltzkiki_ “How do you bring your religious and cultural beliefs and impose it on people from different parts of the country just cause you’re in a position of power? Some even include their personal beliefs. Mad people.”

@Tredyetal “So which religion allows nose piercing?

“Must you wear it to school, once you get to Tanke do all you want but not in the school? It sounds absurd but these are the little things that kept that school sane,” @ofehin.1 tweeted

“I will choose it over again…no b 4yrs?”

“Okay, but how does the piercing affect her education? Nonsense,” @elma_n_ tweeted.

Reacting to the development, the Dean, Students Affairs Unit of UNILORIN, Professor L.T. Ajibade, said “Yes, from the record I have after my interaction with the security officers on duty, the young lady knew she had put herself in trouble and that’s why she tweeted the matter.

“In the first place, we have rules and regulations on campus which dictate the approved dress code. Today, students were apprehended based on those who flouted the regulations and she was apprehended by security officers in the security office. That’s why she tweeted. Even when you see responses of her friends, even on phone, they condemned her character,” Tribune Online reports.
