A new twist has emerged over the kidnap and release of the Vice Chancellor of the Ignatius Ajuru University of Education, Prof Rosamund Osahagulu as the University management has slammed a three-month suspension on Prof. Joshua Osahagulu, who is also the husband of the Vice Chancellor for alleged conspiracy in the kidnap of his wife.
But PM News reports that the university branch of Academic Staff Union Universities, ASUU, is kicking against the suspension of Prof. Joshua Osaghaulu as unfair and unjust and has called on the management to reverse the decision until a thorough investigation is carried out on the matter.
ASUU Chairman of the university, Dr. Ugochukwu Agey said the union is pissed with the way Prof. Joshua Osahagulu was hounded with suspension simply based on the statement he made over the abduction of his wife without thorough probe into the circumstances surrounding the abduction of his wife.
As at the time of filing this report, it is unclear what the evidence before the university management is before it suspended Professor Osahagulu.
“We are aware that he has been suspended without thorough investigation. We are calling on the university management to reverse the suspension,” ASUU said.
The ASUU Chairman pointed out that the hasty action of the University management was capable of bringing the image of the Ivory Tower to disrepute and called on the Rivers state, Governor Nyesom Wike, who is the Visitor of the University to intervene as a matter of urgency.
It would be recalled that the Vice Chancellor of Ignatius Ajuru University of Education,Port Harcourt, Professor Rosamund Green Osahagulu, was abducted by unknown gunmen on her way to her home in Port Harcourt after the closure of work but has since regained her freedom.
