The management of Babcock University has released a statement concerning the leaked video of two of its rumoured students having sex.
The video which has since gone viral on social media shows two people said to be students of the school having sex.
A lot of reactions have greeted the sex tape.
A Twitter user, @BhadmusAkeem, tweeted that the institution had been trending for the wrong reason, adding, “No innovation, no scientific discovery, no Olympics medal, no economic model breakthrough, but sex tape! Waste.”
Another user, @Iam_tandyboy, condemned those judging the couple involved in the sexual act saying, “Nobody is allowed to judge anybody, what happened between those people is just a stupid mistake and I hope they learn from it and not allow the stigma to kill them.”
But an unidentified online commentator said a girl, who did not like the man’s lover, sent the footage to undergraduates of the Babcock University.
The screenshot, where the source chronicled what transpired and was shared by several Twitter users, including @SmartAtuadi, read in part, “I get full gist from Babcock student wey dey the same hall with am.
“Please, keep me anonymous. The video is not a current video o.
“The guy in the video is no more a student of Babcock; he had been expelled since last semester.
“He got expelled for drug abuse and malpractices last semester. So, he was taken to a rehab by the school.
“The girl went to the rehab to visit him. That was when they had sex. So, the guy made a video so that he’ll be able to remember her when she leaves. Then the guy now showed his guys as per he wanted to show off his k…king skills.”
“The guy now later fu..ed up by fu…ing one of his friends babe. Na so that one vex, send am to all his guy friends. As them dey send am, na so one girl wey no like the girl in the video con get the video. She now started sending it to people in the school.”
In a statement issued on Wednesday, signed by Joshua Suleiman, the varsity’s director, communication and marketing, stated that the persons involved in the sex tape are no longer students of the varsity.
Read the statement below:
“The video above referred is, unfortunately, a sad commentary on the moral decadence that has assailed our society at large, a manner of behaviour that is alien and antithetical to the value of our university. It is not worth a tinge of fascination, but a ground of great concern for all.
“The boy in the video was expelled from Babcock University in February this year after investigation and the due process proved that he was into certain grievous misconducts, the acts for which the university has zero-tolerance.
“His girlfriend in the same video, until the video broke out, a third-year student of accounting of this university. After due process, she was expelled from the university for violation of university rules and regulations.
“The place where the immoral act took place, according to her written statement, was at Saint Bridget Hospital, Abeokuta, Ogun State, where the boy has been undergoing rehabilitation for different destructive addictions. According to the girl, the incident took place in April this year during school vacation when she visited the boy at the hospital. The act did not take place at Babcock University.
“Babcock University remains committed to the highest moral standards and would remain a standard-bearer for quality education in standard character, learning and in service to humanity. We are happy to be saddled with this challenge as an institution because it propels us to contribute to the greatness of this nation and the security of a bright future for our children.”
