Not fewer than six lecturers of the Delta State University, DELSU, Abraka, have been sacked by the institution’s Governing Council for various offences ranging from extortion, sexual harassment, leaking of examination questions, to bribery and corruption.
The sack of the lecturers is coming on the heels of the recommendation by the Senior Staff Disciplinary Committee of the university who indicted the lecturers for the offences.
According to a bulletin issued by the management of the institution, six of the lecturers were dismissed while four others were demoted and received various degrees of query for their conducts.
The bulletin which was signed by the university’s registrar, Mr D. A. Urhibo, said: “This is to inform staff, students and other members of the University community that the under listed staff (names withheld) were disciplined by the University Governing Council for various offences at its 97th regular meeting held on Friday, 12th August, 2016.”
Warning lecturers to desist from acts of anti-official activities capable of bringing the university to disrepute, Vice Chancellor of the institution, Prof. Victor Peretomode stressed that henceforth, any lecturer found wanting will face the penalty of sack without benefit.
