THE PRESIDENT of the Oxford Union has made a public apology to a blind student who was 'dragged out' of the exclusive debating chamber by security.

Footage of Ebenezer Azamati being ‘pushed’ out of the union by security went viral this week after the president Brendan McGrath, who was not there on October 17, called for a disciplinary meeting.

He alleged Mr Azamati was behaving aggressively and he was subsequently banned from the union for two terms.

In a statement tweeted by the Oxford Union, the president apologised for the ‘distress’ and ‘reputational damage’ it has caused Mr Azamati.

Mr Azamati's membership has been reinstated.
