The management of Lagos State University has warned some staff of the University who have been dismissed by the Governing Council to stay away from campus.
This was contained in a statement issued by the information department of the institution.
The university in the statement said, “We received credible reports to the effect that some erstwhile Staff of the University who have been dismissed by the University Governing Council, for one form of misconduct or the other have been coming into the University premises, intent on initiating violence and breakdown of Law and Order on the peaceful Campus.
“The University Authority hereby reiterates that all individuals who have been dismissed should stay away from the premises of Lagos State University henceforth.
“The advice is already contained in their Letters of Dismissal, which were not only delivered to them through their respective Deans/Departmental Heads, but were also sent to their E-mail Addresses [Personal and Official], as well as Text messages, immediately after the decision was taken by the Governing Council of the University.
“For the avoidance of doubt, Concerned Individuals and the General Public are reminded that the Governing Council is the highest Policy/Decision making body of the University.”
The management stated that all members of the University Community who have chosen to sentimentally support the dismissed individuals to undermine the decision of the Council should know that they are also acting contrary to the rules and regulations of the University and must refrain from doing so.
“It is imperative to state categorically that the misconducts for which they were dismissed were not Union related, and the disciplinary mechanism of the University [as backed by the Conditions of Service] was dully followed in the Process to arrive at their dismissal.
“Against this background, the dismissed Individuals who wish to have access to the University premises must contact the Chief Security Officer of the University”, LASU warned.
