The governing council of the University of Lagos (UNILAG) has removed Oluwatoyin Ogundipe as the vice-chancellor of the school.

Mikhail Mumuni, the media adviser to the chairman of the governing council, Wale Babalakin, confirmed Ogundipe’s removal.

He disclosed that Ogundipe was removed at the council’s meeting held Wednesday at the headquarters of the National Universities Commission, Abuja.

In attendance were 11 of the 12 council members, the VC included, majority of whom voted for the removal of Mr Ogundipe.

Ogundipe had been accused of financial impropriety and gross misconduct. But Mumuni said only the registrar of the university can provide details of Ogundipe’s removal.
