The Management of Ambrose Alli University, Ekpoma, Edo State has sacked no fewer than 13 of its academic and non-academic staff over alleged falsification of age, financial embezzlement, gross misconduct, extortion and sexual harassment.

Prof. Asomwan Adagbonyin, the Acting Vice Chancellor of the University, who revealed this in Benin said the decision to dismiss the erring staff was reached following the recommendations of the University Staff Disciplinary Committee (USDC) which found them guilty of the offences.

Adagbonyin made the revelations while presenting the committee’s report to the Chairman, Engr. Andrew Olotu and members of the AAU Special Intervention Team (SIT) on Monday.

The AVC disclosed that the affected staff are from the faculty of Basic Medical Science, Medical Laboratory Sciences, Nursing Department, Engineering Department, Faculty of Law and Political Science, as well as the former Director of the University’s Farm.

He also revealed that the disciplinary committee had given the affected staff a fair hearing and recommended that “the criminal aspect of the disengaged staff should be reported to security operatives for further action”.

Prof. Adagbonyin said a lecturer who was the head of nursing science was recommended for sacked after he was found guilty of extorting students of N32,000 and N52,000 respectively, adding that a lecturer who was indicted for sexual harassment was also dismissed.

According to him, “The lecturer had claimed to only make advances, but he went to the said girl’s church to plead for forgiveness.

The victim has been protected and reassigned to another lecturer”.

The Acting Vice Chancellor, however, announced that out of the 209 disciplinary cases received, the USDC has concluded 132 of the cases, representing 63%, while 77 cases representing 37% are still pending. (www.naija247news.com).
