The Lagos State University (LASU) Governing Council has dismissed 15 academic staff, including the chairman and vice chairman of the Academic Staff Union of University (ASUU) of the institution, Isaac Oyewunmi and Adebowale Adeyemi-Suenu, over various malpractices.
LASU spokesman, Ademola Adekoya, said in Lagos yesterday that the institution also dismissed two nonacademic staff and demoted two others.
Among others dismissed for various financial and academic misconduct are Olatoye Raji, Olugbenro Odofin, Adebowale Ademeso, John Adeogun, Scholastica Udegbe and Olufemi Soyeju.
Others are Olawale Raimi, Ademola Adesina, Shamsudeen Badmus, Christiana Obagbuwa, Emmanuel Asapo, Lateef Salami, Olubukola Oyeniya and Fatimat Bakare.
Mr. Adekoya said the decision to dismiss the staff was taken at LASU 115th Governing Council Meeting on Thursday.
Mr. Oyewunmi was dismissed for demanding N50, 000 from students while Mr. Adeyemi-Suenu was sacked for unilaterally altering the results of 12 students already advised to withdraw by Senate.
Mr. Adekoya said the council established that Mr. Oyewunmi demanded N50, 000 from 2003 modular year students of Political Science Education on the sandwich programme to process their results. (NAN)
