The Internet was flooded on Wednesday with news of a sex tape involving two former students of the Babcock University, Ilishan, Ogun State.
In the viral 1 minute 53 seconds footage, a young man and a woman were seen having sexual intercourse in a room.
Sources said the young woman involved in the act was said to be a 300-level student in the Accounting Department of the institution.
They also said the man had been expelled by the institution following his involvement in social vices and examination malpractices.
It was gathered that the man had checked into a rehab centre and his girlfriend paid him a visit there.
During the visit, both lovers engaged in steaming sex and captured the action on video, with the man reported having shown the footage to his friends.
It was alleged that he also had sexual intercourse with one of his friends’ girlfriend, and after discovering the escapade, the friend allegedly released the video to other people till it became public knowledge.
Nigerians reacted differently to the news of the woman’s expulsion.

Her expulsion is to her own good, there's no way you gonna send her back to that school again, she need ❤, she need to change environment, she might continue school somewhere else, she's traumatised, stop bashing #babcockuniversity for expelling her, stop being woke unnecessary.

My take on za #babcockuniversity expulsion.
1. Consensual sex
2. Both or students. 1 got expelled some time back.
3. They made a video
3. In a hospital
Yes , they want to protect their reputation. #goodwill
But in solving a bad publicity is correction.

If we consider that the individuals in the act didn't trend irrespective of the fact that it took place outside the school and maybe not during school sessions, and that it was #babcockuniversity that trended, then we must extend compassion to their brand and business. My 2pence.

The Director, Communication and Marketing, Babcock University, Joshua Sulaimon, said in a statement on Wednesday that the man in the sex tape had been expelled since February for grievous misconduct, adding that when the video emerged, the lady was also expelled after the institution had followed the due process.
The statement read in part, “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 misconduct, the act for which the university has zero tolerance for.
“His girlfriend was, until the video emerged, a third-year student of Accounting of this university. After due process, she was promptly expelled from the university for the violation of the rules and regulations.
“The place where the immoral act took place, according to her written statement, was the St. 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 in the hospital. The act did not take place at Babcock University.”
