The affected officers, according to the governing council’s letter which was sent to Governor Abiola Ajimobi through the Commissioner for Education, Prof Adeniyi Olowofela, had been queried in respect of “series of allegations of fraudulent practices and gross misconduct”.

The suspension order was contained in a memo signed by Prof. Moshood Tijani, the chairman, Governing Council of the institution.

The governing council was said to have constituted a five-man investigation panel at one of its meetings to give the concerned officers fair hearing.

Oladeji led substantive management (i.e. the Principal Officers) have been placed on suspension pending the final determination of the investigation”.
