ABEOKUTA, NOVEMBER 25, 2016 – The Federal University of Agriculture, Abeokuta, FUNAAB, Vice Chancellor, Prof. Olusola Oyewole, as well as the school’s Pro-Chancellor, Adeseye Ogunlewe, have been arraigned in court on an 18-count charge of financial misappropriation.
The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, on Friday arraigned the two officials, alongside the bursar of FUNAAB, Moses Ilesanmi.
The three suspects, who were driven to the court by EFCC operatives in a Nissan Urvan bus, entered the dock at High Court 6 in Abeokuta, Ogun State, for alleged misappropriation of N800 million.
Meanwhile, the presiding judge, O.O Majekodunmi, stepped down the matter briefly for the counsels to resolve their differences over service.
Recall that members of Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities, SSANU, in the institution had earlier in November shut down the university in protest, calling on the Federal Government to probe the activities of the institution under the leadership of Oyewole.
