8 Akwa Ibom Varsity lecturers sacked over sexual harassment


The Akwa Ibom State University said that the management of the institution terminated the appointment of eight lecturers for sexual harassment.

The Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Eno Ibanga, said this at a press conference at Ikot Akpaden on Tuesday.

Ibanga said that the affected lecturers were sacked for sexually harassing some female students and extortion between 2015/2016 academic year and 2018/2019 session.

“The appointment of eight lecturers has been terminated by the university bordering on sexual harassment and extortion.

“As we speak, a notorious one is on the ground and the person will not go scout free.

“Some of the cases are still in court. I swore to run an institution that can stand the test of time. We are doing the best to bring sanity to the institution,” Ibanga said.
