Ignatius Ajuru University of Education suspend four lecturers for extortion

In keeping with the directives from the State Governor Barrister
Nyesom Ezenwo Wike, to Vice chancellors of the state owned
Tertiary institutions, to rid the Ivory tower of bad eggs in the
system, four lecturers have been suspended for two months
without pay.

The lecturers were found guilty of demanding gratifications from
students for Teaching Practice Supervision, extortion of money as
appreciation for courses taught, forceful sale of books with threat
to students who fail or refuse to buy, as well as refusal to mark
examination scripts unless students showed evidence of purchase
of book authored by the lecturer even when the book is completely
unrelated to their studies.

The Vice-Chancellor who disclosed this to newsmen in his office,
commended the students for doing well with the information

He enjoined others with similar circumstances to feel free to report
all forms of harassment and extortion and promised to protect

Out of the four lecturers, three are from the Department of
Secretarial Studies, Faculty of Business Studies while one is from
the Department of Curriculum Studies and Instructional
Technology, Faculty of Education.
