Sex-for-mark: Rights activists hail UNICAL don’s remand in Kuje

Justice James Omotosho of the Federal High Court in Abuja has been commended by rights activists for his decision to remand Prof. Cyril Ndifon, the suspended Dean of the Faculty of Law at the University of Calabar, in Kuje prison. Prof. Ndifon is currently facing charges of alleged sexual harassment and is being prosecuted by the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC).InformationGuideNigeria

The remand order was issued on Monday after Ndifon was arraigned by the ICPC. He is accused in a four-count charge filed by the anti-graft agency, relating to his responsibilities as a public official in certifying students for the award of a Bachelor’s degree in Law and their admission into the Nigerian Law School.

“I know of the fact that the University of Calabar, Faculty of Law in particular, has over time been in enmeshed sexual scandals.

“Students of that faculty and even the university have over the years complained, especially the female students, that they have been sexually harassed and seeing somebody of this stature put to trial by the ICPC is commendable.JAMB Result

“I think it is a message to Nigerian lecturers in our tertiary institutions that they must now reconsider their attitude towards students, and the way they treat them.

“Many students in Nigeria do not have a voice. Many of them have been raped on campus. I personally have had cause to counsel and advise female students who have complained either of one form of sexual molestation or the other.

“But in many cases, they are not able to seek justice because of fear of victimisation. I am hoping that Ndifon’s case, I know he is presuming innocent, but I am hoping that the efforts to hold him accountable for the allegations against him will go a long way to sanitise our tertiary institutions.
