A speaker within the Division of Etymology and African Dialects, College of Calabar (Unical), Dr. Eyo Mensah has been suspended by the administration of the Institution.
Registrar of the College, Mr Moses Abang unveiled this in a letter titled ‘Indefinite suspension from the administrations of the College of Calabar’, dated 15th May 2018, marked by him.
He said that the Bad habit Chancellor, Prof Zana Akpagu had requested the prompt and inconclusive suspension of the speaker.
“I regret to inform you that the Vice Chancellor in exercise of the powers conferred on him by the laws of the University has directed your immediate and indefinite suspension from the services of the University of Calabar.
“The directive is based on a careful consideration of recent development in a case of certificate forgery implicating you and for which reason the university has been requested to release you for trial in the court of law.
“The case under reference is suit No. HC/MSC.67/2018 before the High Court of Cross River State of Nigeria in Calabar Judicial division and presided over by Hon. Justice Emelia Ibok,” he wrote.
He directed Dr Mensah to handover all the University properties in his custody to the Head of his department.
The Don, he said would, inside the period of the suspension be set on half compensation, indeed as he has been coordinated to halt taking an interest in all official capacities, counting enrollment of and representation on College committees and bodies.
It would be reviewed Dr Mensah was dragged some time recently the Tall Court of Cross Stream State by the State’s Division of Open Arraignment (DPP) over a request by the prompt past Bad habit Chancellor of Unical, Prof. James Epoke bordering on certificate racketeering (producing and offering certificates to students).
The Tall Court sitting in Calabar and managed over by Equity Emelia Ibok allowed a movement exparte by arraignment direct, Eno Eyamba, looking for to proceed with criminal charges against the charged.
