Dr. Olaniran Balogun, a lecturer at the Tai Solarin University of Education in Ijagun, Ijebu-Ode, Ogun State, has been suspended by the school’s administration.
After being listed as a wanted person by the Independent Corrupt Practices and other Related Offences Commission, the school suspended him (ICPC).
According to reports, Balogun was fired by TASUED Management and placed under interdiction until he clears himself of all accusations of violations brought against him by the federal anti-graft agency.
Gbenga Omilola, the deputy registrar for media and corporate relations, said this on Sunday.
Omilola said the Vice Chancellor, Prof. Oluwole Banjo, has approved the appointment of Dr Kayode Olusanya, as the new Head, Department of Religious Studies, to replace Balogun.
The statement read,
“Dr Balogun is currently under investigation for the alleged misdemeanor and has since been relieved of his position as the Head of Department, Religious Studies.
“He has also been placed on interdiction until he clears himself of the various allegations levelled against him by the ICPC.
“The university management would continue to do all within its powers to protect the good name and image the university has built for itself over the years.
“The university would therefore not condone any act of indiscipline and corrupt practice by any of its staff member. Dr Balogun is further advised to immediately honour the invitation of the ICPC to clear himself of the allegations against him.
Earlier, the ICPC had issued a warrant of arrest on the wanted lecturer.
According to a statement posted on its portal, the ICPC said Balogun has been declared wanted in connection with a suspected case of demand for gratification and abuse of office.
