The suspension was conveyed in a letter signed by the University’s Registrar, Moses Abang and dated January 19, 2018. He was reportedly suspended over his posts on social media where he allegedly made some “wild allegations” against the Vice Chancellor.
According to reports, Odok has made series of allegations against the Vice Chancellor, VC, Prof. Zana Akpagu including describing him as an“arrogant and greedy” administrator.

The letter however added that Odok will be invited by the Senior Staff Disciplinary Committee to defend his “spurious” allegations against the Vice Chancellor and the University.
