This just in, a lecturer at the Pioneer Northern Nigerian University, Ahmadu Bello University (ABU), Professor David Kolo has reportedly been fired by the University for sexually harassing female students.
This followed the endorsement of the
recommendation of a disciplinary
committee set up to investigate Professor Kolo of ABU’s Faculty of Education by the University’s Governing Council.
Prof. Kolo was earlier sentenced to two months imprisonment by a court in Jigawa State, after he was found guilty of attempting to force a female student to accept his sexual advances.
The student, who is a married woman, had through her husband informed security agents. An impeccable source, close to the ABU’s governing council, said the council had on Wednesday, during its meeting, approved the dismissal of the professor.
In his reaction to the whole episode, the chairman of ABU-ASUU, Dr. Muhammad Kabir Aliyu stated
“I heard about the setting up of the council committee and the invitation extended to the Professor, but I am not a member. We always advise our members not to engage in acts that would demean their character
and that of our organization. Therefore, we are not in any way happy with what the Professor did.”
