Why we dismissed ASUU chairman, 14 others – LASU

 

The management of Lagos State University (LASU) on Monday defended the dismissal of 15 lecturers of the institution.

The lecturers were dismissed about two weeks ago for misconduct.

The management claimed it followed due process in dismissing the chairman of ASUU in the institution, Dr. Isaac Akinloye Oyewunmi, his deputy, Dr. Adebowale Adeyemi-Suenu and 13 others.

Oyewunmi was dismissed for collecting N50, 000 from 2003 modular year students of Political Science Education.

Adeyemi -Suenu  was sent packing for altering the results of 12 students already advised to withdraw by Senate in the Department of History and International Studies  in the 2015/2016 Academic session.

Addressing a briefing at the university Senate building on Monday, the Vice Chancellor of LASU, Prof. Lanre Adigun Fagbohun, recalled how he received the petition on Oyewunmi in October last year, wrote the ASSU chairman to respond to the allegation, but declined the request.

Fagbohun said he wrote to three other individuals mentioned in the petition and the trio admitted that Oyewunmi indeed demanded for money to processes the students’ result.

This, according to him, led to the setting up of a fact- finding panel which later established that Oyewunmi had a case to answer.

Fagbohun said another committee found Dr. Adeyemi -Suenu guilty of manipulating students’ result.
