The university announced the new rule on its website on Saturday. It stated that students could combine black clothing with any other colour, for example, but emphasized that anyone who violated the “all black” prohibition would face appropriate consequences.

The university further prohibited the wearing of Brogues shoes by its students.

“All students should note that from next session, wearing black shirt/top on black trousers/skirt is prohibited. Black material can only be worn with other colours. Also note that shoes called “Brogues” are highly prohibited, hence all students must desist from wearing them. Erring students will be sanctioned appropriately,” the statement read.
