(NEWSFLASH) Troubled UNIZIK Lecturer, Dr. Peter Ekemezie, Fired

AWKA, ANAMBRA STATE, NIGERIA - Dr. Peter Ekemezie of the Department of Pure and Industrial Chemistry, Faculty of Physical Sciences, Nnamdi Azikiwe University, Awka, Anambra State, Nigeria, was last Friday, thrown out of the institution by the management of the University.

The PUNCH reports that besides sacking the senior lecturer, Dr. Peter Ekemezie's claims of holding a masters' degree and PhD respectively from the institution were equally dismissed by the University.

Dr. Peter Ekemezie's sack came consequent upon a series of investigations into the alleged fraudulent academic records of Dr. Peter Ekemezie, which had been allegedly covered up for about nine years by top officials of the institution.

It would be recalled that moves for Dr. Peter Ekemezie's promotion to the rank of a Reader (associate professor) had been concluded when The PUNCH began digging into his case.

Prior to this time, Dr. Peter Ekemezie had been extradited by the University's governing council and had equally been banned from the school.

Committees had equally been set up to carry out investigations on the various allegations, which included  forgery, plagiarism, double employments, and fraudulent certificates.
