Many of the expelled students were final year students of the Department of Economics.

She said the institution’s disciplinary panel would decide the fate of employees that were allegedly involved in the scandal.

The VC in a statement made available to newsmen said: “I can say in the affirmative that these students were expelled from the school before the second convocation in 2017 over alleged exam leakage.

“Those involved were final year students in the Economics Department. They were suspended and due process was thereafter followed.

“We set up a disciplinary committee and the examination misconduct panel and the matter was sent to the Senate.

“At the second to fourth Senate meeting, two weeks ago, the Senate sat on the matter and took the decision. It was on that basis that the Senate took its decision and expulsion letters handed to the affected students.”
