The University of Lagos(UNILAG Governing Council has named Prof. Theophilus Soyombo as Ag. Vice Chancellor to replace Prof. Oluwatoyin Ogundipe who was removed on Wednesday over allegations of misconduct and others.
Soyombo’s appointment was announced in a statement by the Registrar and Secretary to Council Oladejo Azeez, who also noted that Ogundipe was lawfully removed by Council.
Ogundipe had described his removal as null and void, saying it did not follow the process for removal as contained in Section 17 of the University of Lagos Act.
However Azeez noted the Council decided on Soyombo, who is of the Faculty of Social Sciences at the same meeting where Ogundipe was removed.
