Dr. Okwun Omeaku, Public Relations Officer of UNN, confirmed the development in a statement made available to pressmen.
“Not less than 15 members of staff have been suspended for their alleged involvement in a job, admission racketeering, and sexual harassment, their suspension is a bold statement of the current university administration’s zero tolerance for corruption, misconduct and amoral behaviours among staff and students of the university.
“The administration will not fail to take decisive action on any staff or student whose action will drag the hallowed image of the university to the mire, the eagle is still watching and many people are on the rader” the statement read.
Prof. Charles Igwe, the Vice Chancellor of the institution, while reacting on the development, made it known that there’s no hiding place for staff and students who carry out activities capable of reducing the image of the institution.
