Incoming reports suggest that some 107 students of Njala University College (NUC) have been expelled after they were caught in examination malpractices.
That 84 of the students were from the Bo campus and 23 from the Njala campus and expelled owing to suspected cheating during the University’s first semester examinations.
According to management of officials of the University Court, they say with evidences gathered, all 107 students were found guilty and and have been suspended from the university for a period of one (1) year before they could be allowed to continue with their respective courses.
