One of the recently suspended students of the University of Liberia has described their suspension as a “complete joke” and would fight to the letter. Benjamin Wehyee is among 6 students suspended for a semester from the University for their alleged Involvement in campus rioting during the elections for the UL student this year in Monrovia.
The sanction was imposed in the aftermath of investigation conducted by the UL authorities who found the students guilty. But Wehyee said it was not all over for them.
“We understand that the UL administration has suspended me and others for a semester; this is by radio pronouncement as we have not received written letter yet; but, if it is truth, then, we will mobilize the student populace,” Wehyee stated. He claimed that he did not have a red flag (bad) record at the UL and if such report is proven to be truth, it is a witch-hunt.
“This is a complete witch-hunt for the UL campus-based oppositions (SIM-STUDA) to be suspended and expelled,” Wehyee said. He said the UL action was not worrisome to the opposition members, but their mobilization would be in solidarity with them.
