VICE Chancellor of University of Lagos (UNILAG), Prof. lawatoyin Ogundipe, was yesterday sacked by the governing council.
His removal was announced during meeting of the Governing Council of the institution which held at the National Universities Commission (NUC) in Abuja.
Seven members voted for Ogundipe’s removal while four voted against. One of the members voted in favour of his being rather placed on suspension than sack.
The meeting was presided over by its Pro-Chancellor and Chairman of Council, Dr. Wale Babalakin.
Observers say this may be the climax of the lingering crisis rocking UNILAG recently.
