For six years, sacked LASU lecturer delayed our results for not paying N50,000 bribe –Alabi, Ex-student



Like a season movie that is yet to climax, the last seems not to have been heard of the sacking of 15 lecturers, two non -academic staff and the demotion of two others by the Governing Council of the Lagos State University, as more facts have continued to emerge about the issue.

One of the sacked lecturers, Dr. Isaac Oyewunmi, who was the branch chairman of the Academic Staff Union of Universities in LASU , said recently that the allegations against him were mere victimisation and that it was “ shameful ” that LASU relied on “ ghost petition ” to sack him.

He had said, “ If you can even prove that I demanded some amount of money from those students , nothing more than that, and some people actually collected money , it is politics of activism and we are used to it . But it is actually shameful .

In an exclusive interview with our correspondent earlier in the week, the petitioner , Mr . Alabi Abiodun, an ex -student of LASU , revealed how the sacked lecturer allegedly delayed the processing of the result of seven students of the ( 2007) set for six years because they refused to pay the N 50 , 000 bribes he allegedly demanded from each of them.

In the course of the delay, Alabi said he lost two job offers because his result was not ready and that it took the intervention of the former governor of the state , Babatunde Fashola , to get their results.

In a narrative that turned out to be very interesting, Alabi said he gained admission into LASU in 2003 to study Political Science under the sandwich programme . It was a three-year course, but due to strike actions along the line, he graduated in 2007 , instead of 2006 . He noted that his experience while the programme lasted was sweet and productive.
