They said further in the petition, co-signed by Dr. Lekan Aderibigbe, Mr. Ganiu Alokun and Mrs. Osibodu among others, that there should be a determination of whether the denial of these students to partake in the matriculation of the new students conducted on Wednesday February 11th, 2015 was proper and in order.”

The parents alleged in the petition that the university placed advertisement for admission into its law faculty of law through JAMB brochure for 2014/2015 admissions.

“Based on students scores in JAMB UTME and in furtherance of item 3.1 above, LASU placed further advertisement in some selected daily newspapers for prospective candidates to apply for courses of their choice in the University.

The parents added that prospective students of the school were duly cleared individually and severally to undertake the study of course (s) of their choice including law students for 2014/2015.

“Consequently, students were allowed to make mandatory payment of school fees to the University. It is important to note however, that not all prospective students made the screening exercise, some were disqualified,” they said.

According to the parents, the students successfully participated in all the admission processes highlighted in the petition, adding that they were taken aback when on Wednesday 11 February they were all excluded from the matriculation exercise conducted by the University for the new students.
