The Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) has arraigned three senior staff of the University of Nigeria Nsukka (UNN) at Enugu State High Court over alleged corrupt practices and criminal actions.
The trio, who were arraigned in the court presided over by Justice C. Ani, are Mrs. Empress Okoro, Godfrey Onwukwe and Agbo Aaron Adibe.
Their arraignment was the outcome of ICPC’s investigation of a petition by a former student of UNN, Nwoke Chibuike.
Chibuike, in his petition, called for “justice against corruption, extortion, manipulation of students’ result and issuance of fake university statement of result” by the staff, who are examination officers.
On the second count, which is knowingly altering documents without authority, the trio were said to have at the same period in 2009, “while being Registrar Examinations and Records and Examination Officers of University of Nigeria Nsukka, Enugu State respectively, altered the academic records of Nwoke Chibuike Ndubuisi to wit; recording/re computing his CGPA to 3.49 as against the approved 3.50 by the Senate of University of Nigeria, Nsukka.”
