Ambrose Alli University Destruction: Wesley Ifiabor Cries Out For Help Over Acting Vice Chancellor Sunnie Adagbonyi’s Impunity

Prof Sunnie Adagbonyi,

A disenchanted member of staff of the Edo State-owed Ambrose Alli University, Mr Wesley Ifiabor has cried out for help over what he called “undue impunity and harassment” he has been facing in the hands of Prof Sunnie Adagbonyi, the Acting Vice Chancellor of Ambrose Alli University, situated in Ekpoma, Edo State Nigeria.

The AAU chapter of the Academic Staff Union of University (ASUU) has ceaselessly knocked Prof Sunnie Adagbonyi over his abysmal and woeful failure as the Acting Vice Chancellor who should be sacked a long time ago but for being a brother in-law to Governor Godwin Obaseki.

The Union bemoaned the destruction of the institution by the Acting Vice Chancellor, saying that it is sad that the University that has been characterized by impunities, dehumanization and victimization of staff and students, denial of workers’ right to appropriate wages, poor funding of the University, industrial disharmony and erosion of university autonomy, culture and ethos of the institution should still have a tunnel-visioned AVC like Prof Sunnie Adagbonyi for three years running.


“My appointment in AAU as a Lecturer in the department of nursing science was unjustly terminated by the VC without recourse to laid down rules and regulations. He is equally using the Nigeria Police to harass me even after the termination of my appointment.

“Inside sources said his angered is that I refused to beg him and that I’m proving stubborn. I graduated from the department of nursing science as the overall best student and was subsequently offered appointment by his Excellency the Executive of Edo Governor of Edo state, Godwin Obaseki.

“My woes started when the cabal blocked the confirmation of my appointment after spending two years in service. As if that wasn’t enough they manufactured a fake NYSC discharge certificate into my file and came up with the lies that I have two NYSC discharge certificates in my file.

“I submitted my original NYSC discharge certificate to then provost college of medicine AAU, Prof GBS Iyalomhe. He seized my original NYSC discharge certificate so that I won’t have any defense. The Governing council SIT reinstated my appointment when they heard about the injustice but the AVC, Prof Sunnie Adagbonyi, in a battle of supremacy, illegally terminated and removed my name from the university payroll after owing me eight months salaries.

“My worst experience was that my appointment was terminated on Saturday the date of my wedding in an attempt to stop my marriage. I left and faced the challenges of life as a professional but I’m shocked that after four months I left AAU the Chief Security Officer CSO, Mr. Aghahowa Reuben‎ to AAU is harassing my wife and family in Ekpoma under the guise that I didn’t finish marking the examination booklets for the two courses I took and that there’s a laptop in my possession.

“The university Chief Security Officer operates with a gang of policeman from the Area Commanders’ office, Ekpoma. They illegally abducted me and seized my original credentials in the CSO office. The CSO, Mr. Aghahowa Reuben‎ threatened to confiscate my phones if I record him but unknown to him that my device has an automatic App for recording.

“I decided to record them during the illegal abduction because none of my family or friends knows about my where about and the policemen were not in uniform and nothing of such to identify anyone. The Acting Vice Chancellor prof Adagbonyin, who is also Governor Godwin Obaseki’s brother in-law has been using his killer squad to silent and main anyone whom he feels he is not comfortable with.

“I have survived two attempts on my life by these faceless gang that they have the authority of the AVC to deal with me. As I speak my documents are with Prof. GBS Iyalomhe and the CSO, Mr. Aghahowa Reuben‎.

“I’m calling on Edo State Governor Godwin Obaseki and the Speaker of Edo State House of Assembly, Rt. Honourable Blessing Agbebaku and the Commissioner of Police to come to my rescue. My life is in grave danger. The CSO, Mr. Aghahowa Reuben‎ told me that my phone lines were closely monitored and will trail me anywhere in the country”, Wesley Ifiabor told Trojan News Correspondent in Benin City.
