Dr. Nafiu Lukman Abiodun, the Head of the Department of Economics and Statistics in the Faculty of Economics and Management Sciences at Kabale University has been sacked after being found guilty of sexual harassment.
Dr. Abiodun, a Nigerian national who is also the director of research at the university, was indicated mid-year to pave way for investigations into complaints that he was demanding sex from female students in exchange for marks.
It was understood that Dr. Abiodun would give retakes to female students that refuse before luck ran out when some of the victims recorded him demanding for sex on phone.
Now in a November 11, 2022 letter addressed to Abiodun, the University Secretary, Canon Johnson Munono Byaryantuma, says that investigations found him guilty of sexual harassment, failure to follow examination regulations, and professional guidance.
Kabale University Chancellor, Joy Constance Kwesiga, confirmed the development when contacted yesterday but declined to divulge details, saying that they have information that Abiodum may petition the court. END
