“We cannot deny the fact that she is a student of the university,” he said.

He also called out her phone number during the press conference.

Ogundipe revealed that the management of UNILAG would follow due process to suspend Chidinma, saying the matter had become a national issue which was being handled by the police.

“The university is handling the administrative aspect of the issue,” he said.

Last week Thursday, Chidinma, a 300-level student in UNILAG’s Department of Mass Communication, confessed to stabbing Ataga to death while being paraded at the state police command headquarters, Ikeja, Lagos.
