UNILAG’s Vice Chancellor Sacked From Office By The School's Governing Council....Legal or Not?

The Vice Chancellor to the University of Lagos, Professor Oluwatoyin Ogundipe, has allegedly been sacked from office following a majority vote for his removal.

This was announced during a meeting of the governing council of UNILAG in Abuja. However, the reason for his sudden removal is still unknown.

Can the governing council remove a Vice Chancellor? Is this another illegality? Why is the Lagos State and Federal Government silent on this?
