Lecturer’s sack: Court rules in favour of LASU

Lagos State University (LASU)
Lagos State University (LASU)


The National Industrial Court has ruled in favour of the Lagos State University (LASU) in a case involving the institution and a former lecturer, Dr. Udegbe Scholastica Ebarefimia.

Dr. Udegbe was dismissed in 2017 from the service of LASU by the University Governing Council for allegedly altering marks.

He was sacked alongside 14 other academic staff for offences ranging from bribery, result/grades falsification and doctoring of certificates to defaulting on the conditions of their training leave bond and dishonesty among others.

In a virtual delivery of judgement on the case referenced SUIT NO : NICN/LA/596/17 : DR. UDEGBE SCHOLASTICA EBAREFIMIA VS LAGOS STATE UNIVERSITY and ANOR, Honourable Justice Nelson Ogbuanya noted that the defendant – Lagos State University followed due process in all the steps taken leading to the dismissal of Dr. Ebarefimia and that the university’s decision to dismiss the claimant is upheld by the Court.

Justice Ogbuanya also noted that there was no merit in the claims Dr. Ebarefimia made against the university.

The court, therefore, directed that the university should carry out some directives without further delay.
