After the Foundation for Investigative Journalism story on extortion by a university professor, NATHANIEL ERIEOMO, the management of TARABA state university have removed him and replaced him with a brand new Dr Idris Miftahu.
Professor Nathaniel Oke Eriemo, the Head of the Department of Economics at Taraba State University, has been removed by the University management following a report by FIJ on how the department allegedly colluded with Hosea Rimande and Dr Grace Akor, class representatives of the post graduate section, to extort students to the tune of N3.3million.
Our source told 9News Nigeria that many students of the university reported to FIJ that during internal presentation of theses, more than 55 students were forced to pay N10,000, amounting to N550,000 for the ‘entertainment’ of internal examiners.
It was alleged that receipts were not issued and there were no records of how funds were expended.
It is on this facts finding mission that the university after going through series of investigation replaced with Dr. Idris Miftahu.
