Unizik sacks senior lecturer, Peter Ekemezie over alleged certificate forgery

A senior lecturer at the Department of Pure and Industrial Chemistry, Faculty of Physical Sciences, NnamdiAzikiwe University, Dr Peter Ekemezie, has been sacked by the governing council of the institution for alleged certificate forgery.

Ekemezie was alleged to have forged a BSc certificate from the University of Port Harcourt, Rivers State. He was found guilty by a committee set up by the council to investigate allegations of plagiarism and his claim of obtaining the BSc certificate. 

The institution’s registrar and secretary to the council, Philomena Okoye, in a letter, said  the University council was guided by the provision of section 13.1.5 of Nnamdi Azikiwe University Senior Staff conditions of service to interdict Ekemezie from his duty with immediate effect.
