The University of Abuja, UniAbuja, has dismissed a professor and former dean of the Faculty of Agriculture over allegation of sexual harassment.
A source disclosed to DAILYTRUST Newspapers that the University senate approved the dismissal of the lecturer after reviewing the report of the 8-man committee set up to investigate the allegations.
It would be recalled that a female student of the university had in July this year, alleged that a professor in the Department of Agriculture of the university allegedly demanded for sex in order to give her marks.
The lecturer had earlier been issued a query after he was caught pants down during a sting operation by policemen of the Gwarinpa police station.
Following threat by the lecturer that the student, with registration number: 16211546, would not pass a course he was taking unless she gave in to his sexual demands, she reported the matter to security operatives, who organised a sting operation. The sting operation was carried out by men of the Gwarinpa police station, where the professor was caught pants down in a hotel room in the highbrow estate of the Federal Capital Territory.
