Senator Ike Ekweremadu has been suspended by the University of Lincoln, United Kingdom, after being appointed as a visiting professor of Corporate and International Linkages.
The London Mail yesterday quoted a university spokesman as saying that Ekweremadu had been suspended.
A spokesman for the University said;
Visiting professionals are often, as is the case in this case, non-university, unpaid and advisory.
“We are very concerned about the nature of these allegations, but as it is an active police investigation, we cannot comment at this stage.
“While the matter is still being investigated, this person will not be working as a visiting professor in Lincoln.”
