Female students strip varsity lecturer naked over sexual harassment


A senior lecturer with the Federal University Lokoja (FUL), Kogi State, today, Friday, May 10, faced unexpected consequences, as he was stripped near naked over allegations of forceful sexual advancement towards a female student.

The lecturer whose full name was yet to be ascertained as at the time of filing this report was said to have incurred the wrath of some other female undergraduates of the English Department, where he teaches, when they got wind of his latest ‘escapede’ as they insisted he must be publicly ‘disgraced’, claiming that ‘his cup was full’.

The lecturer who was stripped to his boxers was however saved from further molestation by the combined efforts of the school security unit, at the Adankolo mini campus of the institution, reports The Nation.

During the interrogation, the lecturer implicated his colleagues, including the Head of the Department (HOD), claiming that they usually provide him with names of female students to either “pass or fail” based on their level of intimacy or absence with them.

When contacted, the school’s spokesperson, Daniel Iyke, said that the management was already aware of the development and had immediately set up machinery to investigate the case.

According to him: “The thing is that the university has its own internal mechanism in taking care of it.

“The report has been brought to the attention of the vice-chancellor, and he has set up a body to look into it. This was done immediately and the report or outcome will be made known as soon as it comes out. At this point, this is all I can volunteer.”

Efforts to speak with the female victim or her father, who is reportedly a police officer, proved unsuccessful as they were shielded from interacting with our correspondent.
