The governing council of the University of Lagos (UNILAG) has removed Oluwatoyin Ogundipe as the vice-chancellor of the school.
Mr Ogundipe was removed at the council’s meeting held Wednesday at the headquarters of the National Universities Commission, Abuja. In attendance were at least 11 council members, the VC included, majority of whom voted for the removal of Mr Ogundipe.
He was accused of financial impropriety and gross misconduct. Mikhail Mumuni, the media adviser to chairman of the governing council, Wale Babalakin, confirmed.
He, however, declined further comments, saying only the registrar of the university can provide details of the development.
