The Deputy Vice Chancellor of the Kaduna State University (KASU), Prof. Abdullahi Ashafa, has warned lecturers of the state university against engaging in sex-for-grades as part of his efforts to ensure that the institution is free of sexual immoralities.
Prof. Ashafa told the lecturers that, if anyone of them is nursing the idea of immoral sex with female students of the institution in exchange of grades, such lecturer should tender his resignation before being exposed.
The DVC made this known while receiving the Deputy Minority Leader of the Kaduna State House of Assembly, Mrs. Comfort Anwe, during a courtesy visit to his office, saying that KASU had zero tolerance for such misconduct.
It was reported that, Salamatu Bello, a victim of alleged sexual assault, embarked on a quiet protest within the Kaduna metropolis, alleging that a lecturer, A.B. Umar, who molested her at the Ahmadu Bello University was now a lecturer at KASU.
“KASU has risen to the occasion. We have established a committee with broader terms of reference to investigate possible occurrence of this kind of heinous act which might be buried without our knowledge. And if any lecturer found wanting will be dealth with according to the law establishing the university,” the DVC stated.
