University Vice Chancellor, others charged with ‘N800 million fraud’


The Vice-Chancellor of Federal University of Agriculture,Olusola Oyewole,as well as the school’s Pro-Chancellor, Adeseye Ogunlewe, have been arraigned in court on an 18-count charge of financial malpractices.

The two officials were arraigned by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, on Friday, alongside the institution’s bursar, Moses Ilesanmi.

The three suspects were driven to the court by EFCC operatives in a Nissan Urvan bus.

They were docked at High Court 6 in Abeokuta, Ogun State, for alleged misappropriation of N800 million.

The judge, O.O Majekodunmi, stepped down the matter briefly for the counsels to resolve their differences over service.

More details later.

    Lord have mercy. This is not a good testimony. Let’s see how the matter will go anyway. We can’t conclude until the matter is concluded.

  • Rommel

    What type of information is, “The Vice-Chancellor of Federal University of Agriculture” but where is this institution located?

    • Amir

      My brother, even pressmen are corrupt or afraid of corruption to the teeth. An editor approved that intentional omission for publication.

    • Bayo Ola

      If the trial is being held in Abeokuta, Ogun state, chances are that “The Vice-Chancellor of Federal University of Agriculture” is in Abeokuta. While Premium Times might have rushed to press with this breaking news, the clarification you sought is a second away from Google!!

    • Arkhuma

      It’s indeed Abeokuta. The school management recently sacked some whistle blowers after which the Vice and Pro Chancellors were picked up.

  • persona

    Ogunlewe again? After OBJ sacked this guy as minster, dem don recycle am as pro-chancellor? You cant place a crook who was indicted by senate along others of embezzling 300B in 2009 as a head of an educational institution and expect him not to steal.

    Indeed the sacked SSANU staff are now vindicated. The lecturers sufer, the university administrators dey enjoy. ASUU goes on strike for the betterment of Nigerian Universities, but whatever is obtained is recklessly wasted by administrators. God don catham. May prison be their permanent abode. amen.
