The  Economic and Financial Crrime Commission [EFCC]  is investigating
massive corruption  allegations against the Vice Chancellor of the
University of Benin Professor  Faraday Orumwense.
Our exclusive investigation revealed that the Vice Chancellor was
arrested on Wednesday at the University Ugbowo Campus, in Benin, the
Edo state capital but was later released on bail after appeal from
prominent  citizens in the state.
The  Vice Chancellor was said to have been released  to enable him
preside over the convocation ceremony of the University which began
during the week.
It will be recalled that Prof Orumwense  has had issues with the EFCC
over the years over allegations of corruption  and financial
indiscipline and embezzlement of over N95m  when he was the Rector of
the state Polytechnic in USEN.
The state house of Assembly had investigated the matter before but
investigations were dropped due to the intervention of some prominent
citizens of the state including the Esama of Benin Chief Gabriel
The matter is expected to come up on Tuesday at the Federal High Court in Benin.
