Given the alleged misappropriation of the Ten million naira given to Imo State College of Education IhitteUboma, the EFCC was said to have invited the acting provost, Dr. Bon Asiegbu for interrogation.
The Imo State Government had recently given the sum of Ten million to the said Instition for introduction of Professional Diploma in Education in the College, a sum which the acting Provost Asiegbu allegedly collected without the consent of other top management and was used for the purpose for which it was given to the school.
When Lead contacted the said provost over the issue in one of its publications, the provost admitted acceptance of the money and hinted that the money was used for the purpose for which it was sent.
This stand of Asiegbu however appeared contrary to the investigations carried out by this medium which hitherto revealed that the said money was not only not applied for the designated purpose but was collected from the state Government by Asiegbu in his capacity as the Acting provost which ordinarily was supposed to be collected by the school through the buser.
This however degenerated into serious controversy which brought the attention of the IhitteUboma House of Assembymember, Michael Crown.
While the matter was still before the House of Assembly member who apparently was sluggish on the issue, the Efcc had last Thursday, picked the said provost for possible interrogation and investigation, Lead gathered.
However, a source from EfCC Enugu branch, revealed to Lead, that given avalanche of petitions against the said provost and the school over series of funds misappropriation warranted the invitation of the said acting provost.
At the time of filing this report, Lead was not on the known whether or not the provost would be detained after the interrogation or would be left to go home.
