Banky W, Adesua Etomi, among other celebrities, have called on the Redeemer’s University to forgive a student who was recently expelled.


Adebowale Adedayo, the student in question, had last week announced on social media that he was expelled from the institution a few weeks to his graduation.

Adedayo was allegedly expelled for portraying the school’s “officials in bad light” on social media.

Sequel to this, Adedayo took to Facebook to express his grievances about his expulsion.


He had written: “Most of you would observe that I have been silent about Redeemer’s University lately. For those of you who know about my University life, most of you called me and sent me series of text messages 2 weeks ago asking why I didn’t go for my convocation.. this and that… as it was quite clear that I should have graduated in flying colors.

“Well, the management of Redeemer’s University denied me of my joy that day. I had waited so long for that day, and while waiting, I served Redeemer’s University with all my life.

“First as Social Director in my 300Level and then as President of both the student association and the graduating class.


“I ask anyone reading this to call anyone he or she knows in Redeemer’s University including the management that dislikes me so much and ask who Debo Adedayo (Mr Macaroni) is.

“If they will speak the truth with the fear of God, they will tell you that I served the University with all my life and heart.

Adebowale said he “used everything that God blessed me with to promote Redeemer’s University” yet he left the institution a debtor.

“I wrote my final exams, defended my project and was awaiting convocation when I was summoned by the management of the University saying I posted certain things that put the University in bad light.


“In all my posts, I never mentioned the name of the University nor the name of any of her official. Yet on the 12th of this month, I received a letter of Expulsion for this supposed reason. I have been patient enough with the management of the University. That I wasn’t given the joy to graduate on that day I waited patiently for broke my heart

“That I wasn’t given the joy to graduate on that day I waited patiently for broke my heart. Yet, I was willing to let that go out of love for my University. Now look what I have been greeted with.

“I am trying to understand the reasons behind this action by the mgt of the University. Could it be because for the first time in history, my administration refused to give the Vice-Chancellor and Director of Student affairs awards on our student’s appreciation day as we reached the conclusion that they didn’t deserve it?”



In response to his public outcry, Nigerian celebrities have been using the hashtag #RedeemAdebowale to call on the school to rescind its decision.
