Three senior staff of the University of Nigeria Nsukka (UNN) have been dragged to an Enugu State High Court by the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences (ICPC), 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, Mr Nwoke Chibuike calling for: “Justice against corruption, extortion, manipulation of students’ result and issuance of fake university statement of result” by the staff, who are examination officers.
