KASU Lecturer Sacked For Sexually Harassing Female Student While Supervising Her Project 3

In a statement on Friday, KASU Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Academic), Prof. Abdullahi Ashafa said Dr Abbas’s appointment was terminated after the university’s Senior Staff Disciplinary Committee, chaired by the Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Administration), investigated the alleged sexual harassment against the lecturer.

Ashafa said that the report of the investigating committee was presented at the 217th Management Meeting of the institution on January 12, 2021.

According to the report, Abbas confessed in his testimony to have touched and hugged a female student he was supervising her project from behind against her will, when she went to his office to discuss her project.

His testimonies also revealed other nasty and randy misbehaviour he exhibited to the student.

This gross misconduct violated Section 8.7 Paragraph (f) of the Administrative and Academic Regulations in Kaduna State University.

The regulations state that ‘victimization/harassment of student through examination mark is punishable by dismissal and/or termination of appointment,” he said

He said that the management dismissed Abbas from the service of the university and directed that all students under his supervision be reassigned to a decent lecturer in the department.

The deputy Vice-Chancellor described Abbas’ earlier resignation as “null and void.”

KanyiDaily had also reported how a retired Kaduna Polytechnic lecturer shot his wife in the eye and killed himself over a domestic quarrel.
