The management of Bingham University in Karu, Nasarawa state, has expelled a student of the institution who appeared to be flogging his colleague in a viral video.


The varsity announced the student’s expulsion in a statement via its Twitter page on Saturday.

The viral clip had shown the undergraduate bullying another student believed to be a fresher at one of the varsity’s hostels.

While it was not immediately clear what led to the incident, the video attracted a chorus of condemnation on social media, with many Nigerians calling on authorities to take action.


In its reaction, the varsity condemned the student’s behaviour, adding that it has received complaints over the matter.

It also said the student’s expulsion was in line with its zero-tolerance policy on bullying.

“The attention of the management of Bingham University has been drawn to a video on Twitter of a student bullying a fellow student posted by Jemima Nnadi,” it wrote.


“This has since been reported to management and the student has since been expelled in line with University’s zero-tolerance policy on bullying.”


Bingham University was established in 2005 by the Evangelical Church Winning All (ECWA).

The institution said its establishment was “to satisfy the yearnings for quality education in Nigeria”.
