It took time in coming, but when the step was taken, it was well received on campus. The University of Lagos (UNILAG) deproscribed the Muslim Students of Nigeria (MSSN) 18 months after it was banned. The society was proscribed because of internal wranglings.


The Dean of Students’ Affairs (DSA), Prof Ademola Adeleke, announced MSSN’s deproscription. He said were plans to restructure the group to ensure harmony among  members.

CAMPUSLIFE gathered that the Vice-Chancellor (VC), Prof Rahamon Bello, and the DSA brokered  peace among the warring groups  to facilitate the deproscription.

After reviewing the crisis, it was gathered that Bello moved to restore peace by meeting some key players, including the UNILAG Muslim Community (UMC). The VC, it was learnt, appealed to UMC to allow students control MSSN’s affairs.

Their demand contravened the MSSN by-laws, which prescribe selection of the association’s leaders through Shurah (consensus). The Shurah membership comprises representatives from all faculties.
