ICPC To Persecute UNILAG, UNICAL Lecturers Over Rape Case
Two Federal University lecturers will be
prosecuted by the Independent Corrupt
Practices & other related offences Commission
over rape case.
ICPC charges lecturers over rape: Abuse of
office charges filed
The lecturers are Dr. Akin Baruwa of the
University of Lagos, and Professor Cyril Ndifon
of the University of Calabar.
Baruwa, who allegedly raped an 18-year old
admissions seeker, is in prison at the moment
after UNILAG denied any knowledge of him
being their staff.
Professor Ndifon, who is the dean of the
Faculty of Law at UNICAL, has already been
suspended by the school.
Ndifon was accused of forcing himself on a
400-level student in his faculty.
The ICPC is not trying the lecturers on rape, as
that is outside its jurisdiction, but is trying
them on abuse of office.
“The ICPC is getting involved on the basis of
abuse of office, because you would not have
had access to those (girls), if not because of
your office,” ICPC chairman Mr. Ekpo Nta said.
