Prof. Olanrewaju Fagbohun, Vice-Chancellor, Lagos State University (LASU).

The authorities of the Lagos State University, LASU,  has warned dismissed lecturers and other staff to stay off the premises of the institution.

The authorities of the school said it had received credible reports to the effect that some erstwhile staff of the university who have been dismissed by the Governing Council, for one form of misconduct or the other had been coming into the university premises, with the intent on initiating violence and breakdown of law and order on the peaceful campus.

“The University authority hereby reiterates that all individuals who have been dismissed should stay away from the premises of Lagos State University henceforth. The advice is already contained in their Letters of Dismissal, which were not only delivered to them through their respective Deans/Departmental Heads, but were also sent to their E-mail Addresses [Personal and Official], as well as Ttext messages on Friday, 8th September, 2017, immediately after the decision was taken by the Governing Council of the University.

“For the avoidance of doubt, concerned individuals and the general public are reminded that the Governing Council is the highest policy/decision making body of the University.

In the circumstance, all members of the University Community who have chosen to sentimentally support the dismissed individuals [covertly or openly] to undermine the decision of the council are also acting contrary to the rules and regulations of the University and are advised to refrain from doing so,” the school said in a statement issued by Centre For Information, Press & Public Relations of the university.

According to the statement, “it is imperative to state categorically that the misconducts for which they were dismissed were not Union related, and the disciplinary mechanism of the University [as backed by the conditions of service] was dully followed in the process to arrive at their dismissal.

“Against this background, the dismissed individuals who wish to have access to the University premises must contact the Chief Security Officer of the University on 0803-408-5523 or through his E-mail address: who will facilitate such access as may be appropriate.”
