Dr. Eyo Mensah, a Lecturer with the Department of Linguistics and African Languages, University of Calabar (UNICAL), has been suspended indefinitely by the management of the Institution; a letter titled “Indefinite suspension from the services of the University of Calabar’ shows, the letter was dated 15th May 2018 and signed by the Registrar, Moses Abang.
The Vice Chancellor of the University, Prof Zana Akpagu reportedly ordered the immediate and indefinite suspension of the lecturer.
Parts of the letter read: “I regret to inform you that the Vice Chancellor in exercise of the powers conferred on him by the laws of the University has directed your immediate and indefinite suspension from the services of the University of Calabar.
“The directive is based on a careful consideration of recent development in a case of certificate forgery implicating you and for which reason the university has been requested to release you for trial in the court of law.
“The case under reference is suit No. HC/MSC.67/2018 before the High Court of Cross River State of Nigeria in Calabar Judicial division and presided over by Hon. Justice Emelia Ibok,” the letter stated.
Remember that Dr Mensah was arraigned before a High Court of Cross River State by the State’s Department of Public Prosecution (DPP) over a petition by the immediate past Vice Chancellor of Unical, Prof. James Epoke bordering on certificate racketeering
