ESUT called Enugu State University of Science and Technology was formally the Anambra State University of Science and Technology. I am not going into history of multi-campus nature of the School as it is not necessary. What I am going into and I must say is that ESUT is like every other Nigerian higher institution: very corrupt. Corruption in Nigeria is smallest in Nigerian Police Force contrary to what people believe.

Police personnel can collect N20.00 bribe and leave you, but these academic butchers will both butcher women on bed before passing them and collect money to pass the men. ESUT is a School that a graduate student does not receive his result many years after graduation. Here is a School a graduate will be taking GCE to clear his papers to enable him collect his result, the BS.c result. Here is a School that A B C AND D grades have different price tags. Here is a School that admission racketeering is worshipped as a religion. Here is a School a lecturer first brings out failure list before publishing the script due to “sorting”. Here is a School with First Class or Two-One is not on merit, or at least up to 95% of such that hold such results due to “sorting”.

It is in this unfortunate scenario that the recent, very clear and superbly intelligent, the Great Ife – trained Professor of Pharmacy, was called in from University of Ife (Obafemi Awolowo University) to salvage the School from the quagmire.

These academic touts as professors, doctors and lecturers and administrators of endemic corruption saw this deux ex-machina as slap in their faces and planned for his “demise”. Go to the Faculty of Engineering, the hawks as Professors and teachers are not happy for the changes the man is bringing to ESUT. The same holds in other Faculties. The level of corruption in ESUT is supervening and Professor Cyprain Onyeji was earmarked the long awaited change.

This no nonsense Professor from Igboeze does not hear or understand the language of corruption spoken in ESUT, being the Great Ife brought up. But these “butchers” of women students and money-for-hand lecturers teamed up and planned his kidnap. The admission racketeers no longer enjoy the boom, hence, they planned for the onslaught. Hence, both the corrupt lecturers and hellishly corrupt non-academic senior staff caged him in and took him to an unknown destination “to teach him a lesson”, for him to relax and come down on his hard stance against institutionalized corruption. Simple.
