KWASU Dismisses Lecturer Who Planned To Sleep With Female Student ‘Till Daybreak’


    Kwara State University, Malete, has dismissed a lecturer, Pelumi Adewale, in connection with an alleged sexual harassment of a student of the Department of Pure and Applied Sciences, Tosin Adegunsoye

    This was made known by the Vice Chancellor of the institution,  Prof Mustapha Akanbi, in Ilorin on Monday.

    Akanbi spoke at a news conference to herald the eighth and ninth convocation ceremonies of the institution.

    The VC said that Adewale had ceased to be a staff of the school for bringing the institution into disrepute.

    “The security agency has taken up the case and it is in court already, but I am informing you officially that the man is now an ex-staff member of the institution. He is a disgrace to our great institution and we won’t condone such acts,” the VC said.

    The News Agency of Nigeria reports that Adewale was on September 11 arraigned before a magistrate court sitting in Ilorin, over an accusation of sexual harassment.

    The suspect was arrested by the State Intelligence Bureau over offences bordering on criminal intimidation, sexual harassment and examination malpractices.

    According to the First Information Report, a petition dated October 15 by Adegunsoye alleged that in September, Adewale, a lecturer assigned to teach her a course, MLS 212 Cell and Molecular Biology, called her and threatened to fail her in her forthcoming examination if she refused to have sexual intercourse with him.

    The student thereafter reported the matter to the police who advised her to play along in order to obtain raw evidence.

    The lecturer subsequently lured the student into his bedroom apartment around 8:30pm at Taoheed Road, Basin Area, Ilorin, where he gave her a new question paper and KWASU answer script to rewrite her examination with a promise to have sexual intercourse with her till daybreak.

    The suspect was however apprehended in the process by the detectives who were hiding at a secured location to monitor the development.

    In his ruling, the Presiding Magistrate, Ibrahim Mohammed, however, obliged the application of the defence and granted the accused bail in the sum of N200,000.

    He thereafter adjourned the case till December 8 for further mention.
