The management of Tai Solarin University of Education, Ijagun, Ijebu-Ode, Ogun State, has a lecturer, Dr. Olaniran Balogun, suspended, who was wanted by the Independent Corrupt Practices and other Related Offenses Commission, for allegation of sex for characters.
A few days ago, the ICPC had stated that Balogun, head of the Department of Religious Studies, TASUED, was wanted for allegedly abusing his office and demanding gratification.
In response, TASUED management said it had relieved Balogun of his position and banned him until he acquitted himself of all felony charges brought against him by the federal anti-graft agency.
The institution’s deputy registrar, media and business relations, Gbenga Omilola, made the announcement in a statement on Sunday.
The statement read in part: “The said Dr. Olaniran Balogun is a lecturer at Tai Solarin University of Education, Ijagun, Ogun State. dr. Balogun is currently under investigation for the alleged crime and has since been relieved of his position as head of the Department of Religious Studies.
“He has also been suspended until he acquitted himself of the various charges leveled against him by the ICPC.
“The university would therefore not condone any act of indiscipline and corrupt practices by any of its staff. dr. Balogun is further advised to immediately heed the ICPC’s invitation to clear itself of the charges against him.”
Earlier, the ICPC had issued a warrant for the arrest of the wanted teacher.
In the statement posted on its portal, the ICPC said Balogun was wanted in connection with a suspected case of gratification and abuse of office.
