A staff of the University of Lagos, Sunday Meshioye, has committed suicide after allegedly ingesting a popular insecticide.

A source within the university, who spoke with SaharaReporters said, “We are all shocked about how he suddenly killed himself.

“He was supposed to face a disciplinary panel for an issue they said he was involved in.”

Another staff of the University who only wants to be identified as Rashid, said, “They finally pushed him to do it.

“They had set up a disciplinary committee because a bus he was driving for the school caught fire and burnt. He took the poisonous substance a day after he was told he would be punished for the burnt vehicle.”

The late Meshioye was rushed to UNILAG Medical Centre before he was transferred to the Lagos University Teaching Hospital in Idi Araba where he died.

He is said to be survived by a wife and three children.

Published

on

The National Examinations Council (NECO) has fired no fewer than 70 staff for alleged certificate forgery.

The approval for the sack of the affected staff was made at NECO’s 17th extra-ordinary meeting of the Governing Board after vetting a report by a verification committee set up by the management.

The decision was part of a statement signed by the Head of Information and Public Relations Division, Azeez Sani in Minna.

The exam body said that the dismissal of the staff was as a result of a report submitted by a committee constituted to verify the certificates of staff by the management of NECO.

“The certificate Verification Committee carried out its assignment diligently by inviting all staff with questionable credentials to appear before it, during which some staff actually attested that their certificates were fake,” the statement said.

“The Committee also contacted the Schools and Institutions the affected staff claimed to have attended and the Schools and Institutions denied having certificated them.”

It added that the sack is the first phase in the series of the on-going staff certificate verification exercise in the Council.
