According to NAN, the plaintiff claimed he was unlawfully disengaged on January 11, 2016, while serving as the dean adding that the school's claim for his lay off was because he did not develop himself academically.

Lawal also alleged that it was a ruse to get rid of him because he was an independent-minded person.

The plaintiff claimed that he was employed in the school with HND and a Masters of Communication Arts from the University of Ibadan

However, Justice Opeloye Ogunbowale of the National Industrial Court, Ibadan Division, has on Thursday, October 31, 2018, adjourned the hearing of the suit until Tuesday, December 11, 2018.
