As hilarious and shocking as it sounds, reports making rounds on social media suggest that a 400 level student of Bowen University has just got the Vice Chancellor’s wife pregnant. Bowen is a private Baptist Christian Nigerian University owned and operated by the Nigerian Baptist Convention, in Osun state.
The University is housed in the old 1,300-acre (6 km²) campus of the Baptist College, a teacher-training institution on a hill just outside the city. The first Baptist University in Africa.
According to some users who claimed to be students of the school, the school has currently been shutdown and the said student arrested.
But another student dubuke the information in her tweet that
”Bowen university is not on strike. No student slept with the VC’s wife. No hostel was burnt down only a room and the fire was quickly set off. No student was hurt. Please let’s mind what we say or share on social media”
The Vice Chancellor of the Institution, Prof. J.O. Ogunwole, however Debunked the fast spreading rumour on Social media through his official Twitter page which he said
”Twitter is a humorous/good place only strained by the gullibility of people to quickly accept & spread fake /cheap news (intended to misinform & for publicity). It is absolutely wrong. As partners in progress, no man/Institution must be ‘pulled down’ in the name of rts & trends”
And he went further to say in another tweet that the school is not on strike.
”Good Morning. We are UP and God remains good. I see some funny comments about BUI on strike. Kindly note, Bowen University is not on strike – Its early holidays and our calendar would not be affected. ‘Together, We are One”.
