When contacted the Director of ABU’s Public Affairs, Dr. Sama’ila Shehu, confirmed the incident but noted that not all those sacked had their ranks reduced were lecturers.




He said: “Not all of them are lecturers but they are ABU staff. They cut across. The total of those affected are 16.

There are categories of offences and penalties. Some are termination of appointments, dismissal and demotion.”
