63 lecturers of the Ebonyi state University have been relieved of their duties.
Management of the school said on Thursday that the lecturers were sacked for various infringements.
Among the infringements include alleged certificate forgeries, sexual harassment and extortion.
Public Relations Officer of the University, Patrick Itumo confirmed the sack to The Nation.
He noted that some of the people sacked were adjunct lecturers of the school who have over stayed in the university.
According to him, most of the staff sacked were said to have obtained their West African School Certificate Examination (WAEC) before their First School Leaving Certificate.
They were also said to have falsified their age certificates and other relevant credentials.
The spokesman said the sack followed audit report submitted by a committee set up to verify credentials of workers of the institution.
Rumour has it that over 300 persons were affected by the sack but the spokesman said only 63 were dismissed.
“They are not over 300 as being speculated. As I speak to you, they are 63 in number that has been disengaged”.
“There is this audit report that was brought out from where these people were disengaged, 63 of them. Some of them have age discrepancies in their records. Some people obtained doubtful First school leaving certificates; some obtained their WAEC before their First School Leaving Certificates,” he said.
