Ebonyi Lecturers Sacked Over Sex-For-Grade Scandal
Two lecturers of the Ebonyi State University who are fond of demanding for sex to pass students have been penalised by the management.
While one was sacked, the other was suspended after the school found them culpable.
A lecturer in the Faculty of Education was sacked and another in the department of History and International Relations (HIR), Onwe Chinedu Ogah suspended.
Investigations revealed that students of the school pay between N10,000 and N30,000 to pass a particular course or sleep with lecturers if they cannot pay the amount with those rewriting their courses as carryovers as major victims of the trend.
The trend has been on in the school for long and has its name as 'sorting'.
A victim, Chinenye Chike said she had carry over in her HIR department because she failed to pay N10,000 demanded by the lecturer or sleep with him.
She said “I had extra year because I couldn’t give N10, 000 to my lecturer who is now facing disciplinary panel. I carried my two months old baby to re-write his course-Major World Revolution and he made me borrow extra-five courses”.
Another victim, Sylvia Ibiam said after paying money to one of her lecturers to pass her, the lecturer insisted that she must sleep with him which she refused leading to the hiding of her project by the lecturer.
The Vice Chancellor of the University Prof. Francis Idike confirmed the sexual harassment trend, and added that a disciplinary committee had been set up to look into it.
