In a letter dated August 5, 2016 and addressed to Unilorin Deputy vice-chancellor, Academic, and entitled: Reason for My Withdrawal from the University, Jephtaph revealed that he was involved in exam malpractices during his secondary school days and the certificate he used to gain admission into the university was fraudulently obtained.

He explained that it is dishonourable as a born again Christian to continue his university education after using an unmerited certificate to gain admission.unilorin

The letter(copy right) reads in part: “Just as a house that was built on a faulty foundation will surely collapse, it is also certain that a career that is built on a faulty foundation will definitely collapse. All through my secondary school days, I was just a church ‘goer’, without genuine salvation and the fear of God. As a result, I got my WASSCE result through examination malpractice.

“By the grace of God, now, I have encountered the light of the gospel of Jesus Christ, which called for repentance and restitution.

“Sir, with deep conviction, I have realised that there is no point building my academic career on a faulty foundation; since the WASSCE result I got through malpractice is the basis in which my admission into this university was anchored.

“Therefore, I have decided to withdraw from the university and start all over again.”
