Must read

The leadership of the University of Calabar (UNICAL) has started to investigate the Dean of the Faculty of Law, Prof. Cyril Ndifon, for an alleged sexual harassment.

Recall that on Monday, August 14, 2023, a video went viral, in which the students of the faculty accused Ndifon of segxwally assaulting and harassing them.

The students, who were captured storming the office of the school’s Vice-Chancellor (VC), Prof. Florence Obi, carried placards with inscriptions such as, “Ndifon must go for our sanity”, “We are tired of buying law journals”, “We are tired of lecturers not attending classes”, and “Law girls are not your bonanza; Prof. Ndifon should stop grabbing us and others.”

Ndifon had, however, reportedly denied the sexual harassment allegations, stating that the protest was orchestrated by individuals within the faculty who held a grudge against him.

“For Christ’s sake, I don’t teach Year 2 or Year 1 students, so I don’t know why they have chosen to drag my name into the mud. This was why I said earlier that the allegations were lies, cooked from the pit of hell, just to destroy a reputation that I had spent decades building,” he was partly quoted as saying.

Addressing the students’ concerns, UNICAL’s spokesperson, Eyo Bassey said the school management had met with the aggrieved parties.

Bassey said, “By the end of today (Tuesday), we will issue a statement. Yesterday (Monday), the students came out with their protest, carrying placards, which you saw online bearing various inscriptions.

“They were invited by the vice-chancellor. The staffers of the Faculty of Law were invited to come and address management as well as their senior faculty staff about whatever might have been their complaints.

“They spoke and raised a lot of issues. It is not even just about sexual allegations. There are all kinds of other issues they raised and management commended them for bringing the issues to their attention.”

The UNICAL spokesperson further assured that the school management would get the roots of the matter.
