The management of the Federal University of Technology, Minna, Niger State, has sacked one of its lecturers, Omananyi Yunusa, over his involvement in sexual harassment of a female student of the institution.

The Deputy Director, Information and Publications of the university, Lydia Legbo, who spoke with Premium Times in a telephone interview, said the dismissal of Mr Yunusa, a lecturer in the Department of Geology, followed the outcome of investigation into alleged sexual assault on a female student in the department who took a course taught by him.

“Yes, he was dismissed for sexual harassment after investigations proved beyond reasonable doubt,” the spokesperson said.

The dismissal was approved during the University Council’s 131st meeting after an investigative panel constituted by Vice Chancellor Abdullahi Bala found Mr Yunusa guilty of inappropriate relationship with the student.

“The news was kept away from media to avoid distraction,” Yusuf Abideen, a student of the institution, told Premium Times. “In fact, most other departments were not aware. We all saw the resolution.”

A colleague of the victim, who does not want his name mentioned for fear of victimisation, told Premium Times Mr Yunusa’s dismissal would “bring peace to the department.”

“My class governor is a lady but she feels very reluctant when we want to have ‘things’ to do with Mr Yunusa. It got to a time, we felt like impeaching her only to realise that she was avoiding the lecturer because of harassment,” the student said.

“We all got the notice about his dismissal, he disappointed himself,” a senior staffer said.

The University Vice Chancellor, however, said the dismissal of the lecturer would serve as lesson to others to ensure total elimination of sexual harassment in the university community.
