Five staff of the Lagos State Polytechnic (LASPOTECH) have been dismissed over their their roles in plagiarism and falsification of students examination results.
LASPOTECH Governing Council which took the decision said the affected staff of the institution flouted various offences that contravened its conditions of service.
The institution’s spokesman, Mr Olanrewaju Kuye, made this known on Tuesday in Lagos saying that the governing council took the decision at its meeting on Sept. 20, 2019.
According to Kuye two of the affected five staff, were lecturers and three were non-teaching staff.
“The council after exhausting all the due processes as contained in the staff conditions of service, dismissed five staff of the institution for offences ranging from plagiarism and falsification of students’ examination results.
“Also, fraudulently gaining employment without pre-requisite qualification, breach of confidentiality, assault and battery, among others,’’ he said in a statement.
He disclosed that the affected staff are Talabi Kareem, Adeniyi Olatunji, Mutiu Badmus, Anuoluwapo Olorunseun and Rashidat Abudu.
Kuye, however, noted that the affected staff had been duly communicated of the decision of the council.
