The National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) has petitioned the Independent Corrupt Practices and other related offences Commission (ICPC), asking it to probe Professor AbdulAkeem Agboola of the Federal University of Agriculture, Abeokuta (FUNAAB), who was suspended for alleged age falsification.

Agboola was said to have celebrated his 60th birthday at a date his birth certificate with the university indicated he was 58.

According to the petition signed by Ogun NANS Chairman, Damilola Simeon, and the Chairman of the National Association of Ogun State Students (NAOSS), Gbemileke Ogunronbi, the students claimed that plans were underway to pardon Agboola and clear him of all allegations.

"We have it on good record that the powers that be have perfected plans to extricate and absolve Professor AbdulAkeem Agboola of all charges. They therefore plan to present the measly suspension as enough punishment for his corruption charges without following due process.

"Consequently, plans are now in place to restore him to his Ex-position while all charges are dropped," it was said.
