Metro EFCC To Quiz JAMB Registrar, Oloyede, UNILORIN VC Over Alleged Disappearance of N3.5Bn



Following the alleged disappearance of more than N2 billion naira from the coffers of the University of Ilorin, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) will quiz the institution's immediate vice-chancellor, Prof. Ishaq Oloyede and the incumbent, Prof. Abdulganiyu Ambali.

It was learnt that the ‎leadership of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), petitioned the anti-graft agency against the management of the foremost institution in Nigeria.

Oloyede was recently appointment registrar of the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) but his appointment by President Muhammadu Buhari has been protested against by ASUU.

The petition, according to Nigerian Tribune, was submitted on Thursday, December 29, 2016 at the zonal office of the EFCC at 16, Reverend Oyedeji Crescent, Iyaganku, Ibadan.

ASUU listed pension fraud, unremitted deductions, extortion from students, contract inflation and kick-backs; as well as unlawful payments to ex-principal officers of the university as some of the allegations against the duo.

According to ASUU, the university management is one of the most corrupt among tertiary institutions in the country.

Also, the petition claimed a fraud case of N1.5 billion as jointly perpetrated by the immediate past vice chancellor and the incumbent on fraudulent and unremitted deductions from staff salaries.

“Our preliminary investigations revealed that billions of naira have been extorted from population of about 35,000 students including Sandwich students over the past years,” the petition said.
