The management of The Polytechnic, Ibadan (TPI), has fired a lecturer identified as Kelani Omotosho, over allegations of sexual misconduct involving a former student.
The institution broke the news on Saturday in a statement signed by Modupe Fawale, its registrar.
It said the lecturer, who had worked with the department of urban and regional planning, was sacked for allegedly embarrassing and tarnishing the image of the institution.
In the letter, which was dated September 15, it wrote: “You will recall that you were engaged in inappropriate behaviour and poorly managed relationship with your former student.
“This act embarrassed and tarnished the image of your employer, The Polytechnic Ibadan.
“You will also recall your responses and appearance before the Investigative Panel and Senior Staff Disciplinary Committee that looked into the above matter.
“After careful consideration of the above issue, the governing council found you guilty as your actions and activities amount to misconduct.
“The governing council, therefore, approved the immediate termination of your appointment with effect from Friday, Sept. 11, 2020.
“You are to hand over all property of the institution in your possession to your head of department.”
