Governor Nasir El-Rufai has commended the suspension of Bala Umar, one of the lecturers of Kaduna State University (KASU), for allegedly soliciting sex for grade from a female student.
Concise News had reported that the suspension of the lecturer by the school management 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.
In a tweet from his verified Twitter handle on Thursday, the governor noted that the suspension of Umar by KASU was the first step.
El-Rufai also condemned the purported action of the embattled lecturer to demand sex for marks, adding that the suspended lecturer and 15 others sacked by ABU for alleged sexual harassment would be fully investigated and prosecuted.
KADUNA UPDATE: The suspension of Mr. Umar by KASU is the first step. He & 15 lecturers sacked by nearby ABU Zaria for sexual harassment will be fully investigated & prosecuted by the Attorney General of Kaduna State. We must face evil & end this scourge in our state!! @DrHadiza https://t.co/Jw58sAHpc7
