Unical Sex Scandal: DSS Confirm Arrest Of Prof Cyril Ndifon

Must read

The Department of State Services (DSS) has confirmed that Professor Cyril Ndifon, the former head of the University of Calabar’s College of Law, is in their custody contrary to initial reports.

Earlier reports claimed that the embattled professor who is accused of having sex with some Unical law students was kidnapped by unknown gunmen.

However, Dr. Peter Afunanya, the DSS’s head of public relations and strategic communications, confirmed to journalists in Abuja that the DSS arrested Ndifon at the request of the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Crimes Commission (ICPC).

The DSS claimed that they had to arrest the professor because he repeatedly declined their invitation in the widely reported sex scandal.

According to Afunanya, the arrest which was executed on October 4, 2023, in Calabar, Cross River State, was done in compliance with a court order.

“However, the Service, following the commission’s request and in the spirit of interagency cooperation, supported it for a successful operation.”

Recently, Naija News gathered that Ndifon filed a lawsuit against the vice chancellor of the University of Calabar, Prof. Florence Obi, and other officers at the National Industrial Court in Calabar, the capital of Cross River State, over the sex scandal engulfing the institution.

The law professor, who is currently on suspension, claimed that he had to take the principal officers of the school to court to clear his reputation of the smear campaign against him. He also alleged that the VC funded the protest against him because she wanted him removed from his role as dean and from academia.
