Chikaodinaka Nwankpa, a professor at Drexel University, Philadelphia, blew nearly $200,000 of federal research grant at strip clubs.

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

The settlement was an effort to recoup funds that the former head of Drexel’s Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering squandered.

After an internal audit in 2017, the university discovered Nwankpa used the money to make personal iTunes purchases as well as for “goods and services” at Cheerleaders, Club Risque and Tacony Club between July 2007 and April 2017,

“This is an example of flagrant and audacious fraud, and a shameful misuse of public funds. The agencies providing these grant funds expect them to be used towards advancements in energy and naval technology for public benefit, not for personal entertainment,” U.S Attorney, William McSwain, said.

Drexel cooperated with the federal investigation. Nwankpa repaid $53,328 to the university, resigned in lieu of termination and was debarred from FG contracting for six months.
