The University of Liberia has strongly frowned on the behavior of a group of students from the College of Agriculture and Forestry, who on Friday, April 26, 2013 held hostage the dean of the college, Dr. Roland C. Massaquoi and some professors at the Fendall campus, outside Monrovia.
According to a release, the student wrongly accused Dean Massaquoi of misappropriating US$100,000.00, which they alleged was a scholarship fund donated to the college by Golden Vereleum.
The students also accused Dr. Massaquoi of lip service to the development of the College of Agriculture and Forestry, including the lack of field trips and practicum for the lessons they are now taking.
According to the release, investigation currently being conducted by the President of the University Dr. Emmet Dennis, reveals that the students’ protect was as a result of the lack of information and communication between them and the college. It noted allegations levied against Dr. Massaquoi are all misinformation based on hear-say and rumors.
UL President Dr. Dennis, having heard both sides of the problem, has decided to appoint two committees to probe into the matters and report to the UL Administration with recommendations to establish the cause for the rampage.
