Jane Ottah, 28, was expelled by the Rivers State University of Science and Technology, in 2015, for having speech and hearing challenges. She has now sued the institution for damages to the tune of N20, claiming that the damages were for the trauma, embarrassment, and emotional distress caused by her expulsion.
She also demanded that the university provide the necessary support services and facilities to aid her learning. She further demanded a perpetual injunction restraining the university or their agents from discriminating against her in any way.
The Rivers State High Court has fixed February 19 for hearing. Ottah, a former student at the Department of Educatinal Foundation at the university, was expelled on January 30, 2015, over claims that she had speech and hearing challenges.
In her expulsion letter, C.M Ewhorlu, Principal Assistant Registrar (Senate), said: "I am directed to state that during your recent medical examination in the Health Services Department, it was observed that you are medically challenged and have hearing and speech difficulties.
You are therefore advised to hand over all University property(ies) in your possession to your Head of Department and thereafter leave the campus." Ottah said her ambition of reaching the highest point possible, academically, notwithstanding her disability was frustrated by the university.
"The Applicant, notwithstanding her disability (hearing impairment) has a burning desire for education – a desire she pursued such that she acquired primary education, secondary education where she passed eight subjects at a sitting," Ms. Ottah said in a court affidavit

Crude oil rose on Wednesday, paring earlier losses,
after fresh comments from Russia about its openness
to talk with OPEC over output cuts helped revive hope
of higher prices.
Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said if there is
consensus among the Organization of the Petroleum
Exporting Countries and non-OPEC members to meet,
“then we will meet”.
This helped push the price of oil, which had been set
for a third day of declines after data on Tuesday
showed another big build in United States inventories,
off the day’s lows.
Brent for April delivery rose 40 cents to $33.12 a
barrel, pulling away from a session low of $32.30.
US crude futures rose 46 cents to $30.34, off a
session low of $29.40.
“Is there going to be a meeting between Russia and
OPEC? That is a supportive factor in this rally that
we’ve seen in the last one hour,” PVM Oil Associates
analyst, Tamas Varga said.
