US Based Nigerian Professor Chika Nwankpa Arrested For Spending $96K In Grant Money On Strip Clubs

A former Drexel University professor Chika Nwankpa was arrested on Monday for allegedly blowing nearly $200,000 in federal grant money on strip clubs and other expenses, prosecutors said.





Chika Nwankpa, 57, the former head of the electrical engineering department, admitted to misusing the funds when confronted by officials at the Philadelphia university last year.

Nearly half of the money, $96,000, went toward adult entertainment and bar tabs, prosecutors who announced his arrest said.

Another $89,00 was spent on food and iTunes purchases.

Nwankpa allegedly looted the grant money from the Navy, the Department of Energy and the National Science Foundation, spending it over the course of seven years beginning in 2010, prosecutors said.

Last October, Drexel University settled with federal prosecutors for $190,000 to avoid a potential lawsuit from the Justice Department, the Philadelphia Inquirer reported.

Around that time, when Nwankpa was confronted with the improper spending, he resigned and agreed to pay $55,328 for the bill.

Nwankpa was charged with theft and freed on $25,000 bail. He could not immediately be reached for comment.

    2. No matter what he spent it on, it's still a crime. I know another Nigerian professor around his age who got fired and I think still in court for misusing grant money. I dont get it..after God has blessed you with a good job and accolades ie professorship and Grant, you throw your blessings to swine. Now you lose everything..Your job, your honor, your circle, public trust, all your savings etc. After spending years in the USA, you still think you can do this without being caught?? Just apply to be an uber driver cos with this record, forget any good job.

    3. Many Nigerians "eat" grant money like hot yam. Some even apply for grants so they can spend the money like uncle wayward.

    4. That’s what happens in Nigeria. I think he forgot he’s in a different country. If this man, used the money to build a house, it would be different because some people would have thought he got desperate to get a place before his return. But strip clubs and bars?? Terrible.

  8. This story would have made sense if it was concluded with the info that the wife left his foolish ass, got their home and kicked his over ripe pawpaw looking face to curb. Imagine the embarrassment he would cause his family in their Nigerian community and church.
    Imagine his career that he threw to the garbage, all for nothing.
    You blew Grant money on strip clubbing at 57yrs OLD, WHAT A SHAME!
