The Management of the Ambrose Alli University, Ekpoma, Edo State has sacked 13 academic and non-academic members of staff for offences ranging from falsified age, fraud and gross misconduct to extortion and sexual harassment.
Prof. Asomwan Adagbonyin, the varsity’s acting Vice Chancellor, said the decision was informed by the recommendations of the University Staff Disciplinary Committee which found them guilty of the offences.
Adagbonyin stated this on Monday while presenting the committee’s report to the Chairman, Andrew Olotu, and members of the AAU Special Intervention Team in Benin City.
According to him, the affected members of staff were from the Faculty of Basic Medical Science, Medical Laboratory Sciences, Nursing Department, Engineering Department, Faculty of Law and Political Science among others.
He added that the disciplinary committee recommended that “the criminal aspect of the disengage staff members’ offences should be reported to security operatives.”
Adagbonyin said a lecturer was recommended for sacking after he was found guilty of extorting students of N32,000 and N52,000, adding that a lecturer who was indicted for sexual harassment was also dismissed.
He said, “The lecturer had claimed to only make advances, but he went to the girl’s church to plead for forgiveness. The victim has been protected and reassigned to another lecturer.
“Out of the 209 disciplinary cases received, the USDC has concluded 132 of the cases, while 77 cases are pending.”
