Three staff of the Federal University of Agriculture, Abeokuta has been dismissed by the school’s management for spearheading the petition against the Vice Chancellor, Olusola Oyewole, to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC.

The petitioners accused Mr. Oyewole of misappropriation of funds and abuse of office.

The council also dismissed another 18 staff of the institution.

The decisions were reached at the end of a meeting presided over by the chairman of the council, Adeseye Ogunlewe, late Thursday in Abeokuta.

The affected whistle blowers are Lasun Somoye, Abdulsalaam Sobbor and Bimbo Bankole., all members of the Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities, SSANU.‎

While the allegations were still being investigated, the vice-chancellor suspended the three petitioners indefinitely. On Thursday, the staff were dismissed.

Thursday’s governing council meeting was said to have been attended by all members of the council, except the representative of the Federal Ministry of Education.‎‎‎‎‎‎

Reacting to the development, on Friday, SSANU wrote a letter titled, “Repression of Staff For Reporting Corruption Cases to EFCC’ to President Muhammadu Buhari.

The union accused the university management of victimizing whistle-blowers rather than address the allegations raised.
