The management of Kaduna State University (KASU) has suspended one of its lecturers, Mr Bala Umar, for allegedly soliciting sex for grade from a female student.

The university’s Deputy Vice-Chancellor, Professor Abdullahi  Ashafa, disclosed this to Channels Television on Thursday.

Professor Ashafa explained that the suspension of the lecturer was due to a one-man protest at the institution by a female graduate of Ahmadu Bello University (ABU), who accused Uman of demanding sex from her in 2013.

The lady, whose name was not given, alleged that the lecturer, who was sacked by the management of ABU for sexual misconduct and later employed by KASU, was not fit to be a lecturer in any institution.

The deputy vice-chancellor who chaired the committee set up to investigate the allegation earlier in October 2019 noted that Umar, having been sacked from ABU, ought not to have been re-employed by KASU due to the controversy surrounding his dismissal.

He stressed that the university has zero-tolerance for such misconduct by its members of staff.

Professor Ashafa said they would proceed with investigations into the allegations levelled against the embattled lecturer in order to ensure that justice was done.

He also disclosed that two committees were set up – one to investigate Umar’s case and the other was for general investigation on events on campus relating to both academic and non-academic employees of the institution with a view to flushing out bad eggs from the university.

In his reaction, Governor Nasir El-Rufai condemned the purported action of the embattled lecturer to demand sex for marks.

In a tweet from his verified Twitter handle, the governor noted that the suspension of Umar by KASU was the first step.

He added that the suspended lecturer and 15 others sacked by ABU for alleged sexual harassment would be fully investigated and prosecuted.
