The consequences of immorality have caught up with Dr. Mohamed Sani Idiagbon, a lecturer and Head of English Department at the University of Ilorin’s (Unilorin).
Following the release of an audio clip of him allegedly sexually harassing one of his students. Dr. Mohamed Sani Idiagbon was forced to resign.
According to Sahara Reporters, the victim, identified as “Faith,” is a 200 level student of the department. She had gone to the perpetrator’s office concerning a Continuous Assessment test she had missed, when the harassment took place.
The University’s Director of Corporate Affairs, Kunle Akogun, confirmed Idiagbon’s resignation after he had been suspended and removed as the head of the English department, saying that he (Idiagbon) refused to honor an invitation of the Staff Disciplinary Committee because he preferred to resign than to dance to the rhythm of the gods.
He also said that the university is investigating the matter and will ensure that the lecturer is duly punished if found guilty of the allegations against him.
“The university frowns against sexual harassment or any other harassment at that. The university is making necessary investigation and once we are done, the culprit will be brought to book,” said Mr Kunle.
According to the report by the Students’ Union President, Faith told the lecturer that she did not like what he was doing after Mr. lecturer touched her breast and asked her to bring it out for him to suck. He also told her that she was fake and sends her to lock the door after she says she doesn’t feel comfortable. She also mentioned something about being in her period.
In the video he says, “you are not the only one,” and she replies “I know I’m not special”. Then after she doesn’t agree to doing things, he tells her to leave the office and not to call him again.
