University Lecturer, Omananyi Adinoyi Exposed And Dismissed Over ‘Sexual Harassment’ In Minna
A Nigerian university lecturer has been exposed and dismissed after sexually harassing his student. According to reporters, the lecturer, Omananyi Yunusa Adinoyi belongs to the Department of Geology, Federal University of Technology, Minna, Niger State.
Adinoyi’s dismissal was approved during the University Council’s 131st meeting. A lecturer, who pleaded for anonymity, said the case has been on for about three months after a committee was raised to investigate the allegations.
According to him, there were discriminatory evidence against Adinoyi as the student involved provided an audio recording of their conversation and the act. It was however learnt that Adinoyi and the student have been dating for a while.
“It is not as if he forced her; it was a mutual affair, and we don’t know why the girl blew the lid.
“He was not dismissed because he slept with the girl; the University is angry that the act was committed inside his office because the evidence and tape did not show he forced her.
“It is also not clear that he has not been intimidating the girl since she is a student in his department. And there was no way he could have exonerated himself that he did not use his position to intimidate the student. All evidence was against him,”
the source explained.
