The University of Ilorin on Tuesday said it had expelled three undergraduate students for  internet fraud and theft.

The institution also reprimanded 40 other students of the institution for violating the university’s dress  code.

It said Adeyemi Daniel Oluwaseyi of the Basic Medical Sciences was found guilty of unlawfully taking possession of ATM card and PIN belonging to another student while Mkperedom Olalekan Okon of the Arts Faculty was found guilty of  internet-related fraud.

The report also said that the 40 undergraduates, who were  found guilty of violating the institution’s dress code,  received strong warning and were asked to write an undertaking to be of good behaviour.

The students were directed to report to the Students’ Affairs Unit at 8:00 a.m. every Wednesday.
