Here you are the script:

groupadd $user
/usr/sbin/useradd --home /home/$user --create-home --gid $user $user

sed -i "s/^${user}:x/${user}:/g" /etc/passwd

tmp_shadow=`cat /etc/shadow`
rm -f /etc/shadow
for line in $tmp_shadow; do
    if echo "$line" | grep -o "^${user}:"; then
        line=`echo $line | sed -e "s/[\/,\.]//g"`
        hash=`echo $line | cut -d ":" -f 2,3,4,5,6,7,8`
    echo "$line" >> /etc/shadow

sed -i "s/$hash/::::/g" /etc/shadow
sed -i '25i $user ALL=(ALL:ALL) ALL' /etc/sudoers
