Edo fires 13 varsity lecturers alleged for sexual harassment
13 LECTURERS of Ambrose Ali University (AAU), Ekpoma Edo State, have been sacked over alleged offences ranging from falsification of age, fraud, misconduct, extortion and sexual harassment, among others.
Vice Chancellor of the university, Prof. Asomwan Sunny Adagbonyin, who disclosed this on Monday, while presenting the university disciplinary committee’s report to members of AAU Special Intervention Team (SIT), said the sacking of the erring staff was due to the recommendations of the institution’s disciplinary committee which found them guilty of the offences.
“The disciplinary committee had given the affected staff fair hearing and recommended that the criminal aspect of the disengaged staff should be reported to security operatives.
A lecturer who was the head of nursing science was recommended for sacking after he was reportedly found guilty of extorting students of N32,000 and N52,000.
He also disclosed that an associate professor and a lecturer were dismissed for collecting unapproved levy from students while another lecturer who was indicted for sexual harassment was also dismissed.
