Reports reaching Trail Reporters News room reveals that the two most wanted alleged thieves in the history of Polytechnic Education in Nigeria, Mr. Napoleon Akpubi and Mr. Benson Omonode, who were the Bursar and Registrar respectively of Delta State Polytechnic Oghara have been suspended yesterday from office by the Governing Council of the Polytechnic Oghara.
Reliable Sources within the Polytechnic, confirmed to our correspondent that the duo were asked to hand over to the most senior officials in their respective units which was immediately carried out.
Our medium gathered that their suspension followed several allegations of fraud, misappropriation and abuse of office reported by one Mr. Ovie Osiobe against the former Rector of Delta State Polytechnic Oghara, Clara Sogbaike, the suspended Registrar, Mr. Benson Omonode and the suspended Bursar, Mr. Napoleon Akpubi.
Trail Reporters had published several reports with facts about the misappropriation, fraudulent diversion of funds and the purchase of Properties with looted funds running into billions of naira by the three most wanted Nigeria Tertiary Education alleged thieves, Clara Sogbaike, Napoleon Akpubi and Benson Omonode. These alleged three thieves, Trail Reporters gathered, have been evading investigations from all security/anti graft agencies in Nigeria by filing frivolous and mischievous Fundamental Human Rights Suit in various Courts to prevent security operatives from arresting and prosecuting them.
Speaking with a Staff of the polytechnic,the source informed our correspondent that the suspension of the two Principal Officers by Andy Asawota led Governing Council of Delta State Polytechnic, Oghara, has been long overdue because of Political interference from big wigs in the State who benefitted from the proceeds of their alleged fraud and that the development is a right step in the right direction which shows that the State Government has finally bowed to Pressure and is not willing to protect corrupt officials in the State from investigation by security/anti graft agencies.
Efforts to speak with the Public Relations Officer of the Polytechnic to officially confirm the names of the most Senior Officials whom the suspended Principal Officers of the Polytechnic handed over to, did not yield positive results as at the time of going to the Press.
