The former Dean, Faculty of Law, University of Calabar, Prof. Cyril Ndifon, who was suspended after a 400-level student, Ekong Nkang, accused him of raping her on Saturday , August 29, 2015, in his office, has dragged his employer to court.

Prof. Ndifion’s suspension took effect in September 2015, and in October 6, 2015, he and Miss Nkang appeared before a special committee headed by Supol Beatrice Odey at the Force Headquarters in Abuja where the case was transferred to at the instance of an NGO that petitioned the Inspector General of Police, alleging the Cross Rivers State Police Command would seriously compromise and prejudice the case.

But the battle has taken a legal twist, following a suit filed by Prof Cyril Osim Ndifon before the National Industrial Court, sitting in Calabar, where he is challenging his suspension and possible sack by University of Calabr.

In the suit No. NICN/CA/01/2016, Prof. Ndifon is asking the court to determine the lawfulness of the university’s action , and If found to be illegitimate, he wants the court to void the suspen¬sion and order the university to recall him promptly.
