Sex-For-Grades: UI releases hotlines for sexual harassment complaints

The University of Ibadan (UI) on Wednesday published an e-mail address and a telephone number for its students to report cases of sexual harassments and sexual misconduct.

The university also said it has set up an ad-hoc committee to investigate such reports emanating from the institution.

The Vice-Chancellor, Abel Olayinka, in a statement announced the development on Wednesday.

Mr Olayinka said the university has zero-tolerance for sexual harassments and misconducts.

The university’s move came a few days after a lecturer at the University of Lagos was exposed in a 13-minute video soliciting sex from a BBC undercover, Kiki Mordi, posing as a 17-year old seeking admission into the university.

Mr Olayinka described the report of cases of sexual harassment in Nigerian universities as deeply disturbing.

He however assured that all claims will be processed through disciplinary organs of the University using its extant regulations and guidelines and maximum sanctions will be imposed if the claims are substantiated.
