Dr Michael Ukaegbu, a senior lecturer at Abia State University in Uturu, has been fired for a sex-for-marks offense.
The ABSU Council-in-Session ratified the dismal of Ukaegbu, who was a former acting Head, Department of Mass Communication, for involvement in sex-for-marks, in a communiqué issued after the 148th Regular and Resumed Meeting of the Governing Council of the varsity, which was chaired by the Pro-Chancellor, Adolphus Wabara.
The council also ratified the dismissal of another lecturer, Mr Leonard Chukwuma, for admission fraud and racketeering, according to the communiqué signed by the Registrar, Acho Elendu.
The school management had been following the two lecturers, according to a senior university employee.
A disciplinary committee was formed, according to the source, to investigate the allegations against them, and reports were sent to the council with appropriate recommendations, which were ratified.
