By our Reporter

The management of the University of Calabar has begun an investigation into an allegation of sexual harassment levelled against the Dean of the Faculty of Law, Prof. Cyril Ndifon, on Monday by the students of the institution.

In a viral video on social media on Monday, the students of the faculty accused Ndifon of sexually assaulting and harassing them.

The students were seen storming the office of the school’s Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Florence Obi, bearing placards with inscriptions such as, “Ndifon must go for our sanity”, “We are tired of buying law journals”, “We are tired of lecturers not attending classes”, and “Law girls are not your bonanza; Prof. Ndifon should stop grabbing us and others.”

The vice-chancellor later invited the staffers of the Faculty of Law for a meeting with the management as well as their senior faculty staff about whatever might have been their complaints.
Lots of issues were raised and they are not even just about sexual allegations.

In the meeting, there are all kinds of other issues raised and management commended them for bringing the issues to their attention.
It was learnt that the University will be releasing a statement soon on the matter.
