Nwamaka Ogbonna, President of the Oxford University Africa Society (OUAS), told CNN that Azamati had arrived early to reserve a seat. He then stepped out for dinner before returning to "reclaim his seat."

Citing what Azamati and other eyewitnesses told her, Ogbonna said: "He is then accosted by the security person who says he can't sit because the place is full and the debate is about to begin."

A video of the incident, shared with CNN by OUAS, shows Azamati trying to resist attempts to make him leave and asking for his seized Oxford Union membership card to be given back.

In a tweet, OUAS said it strongly condemned "the violent, unjust, inhumane, and shameful treatment" of Azamati.

Following the incident, the Oxford Union brought a complaint against Azamati for "violent misconduct" and in a hearing last month he was banned from the Oxford Union until May 2020, according to OUAS.

This claim was dropped after an appeal hearing on Saturday, and the Union president, Brendan McGrath, apologized "unreservedly" for the distress and reputational damage caused to Azamati, according to a statement by OUAS.

In the same statement, OUAS called for a public apology from both the Union and the president, as well as details on how the Union will compensate Azamati. It also called for the security guard to be punished.

Hatwell, the eyewitness, told CNN that the incident represented a "disproportionate use of force," and was "distressing and humiliating" for Azamati.

Hatwell said he, OUAS and others are attempting to bring impeachment charges against McGrath for his handling of the situation.

CNN has approached the Oxford Union, McGrath and Azamati for comment.
