University Of Nigeria Axes Lecturer Seen In Viral Sex Video

The University of Nigeria, Nsukka (UNN) has slammed an indefinite suspension on Mr. David Udo-Udom, a lecturer identified in a sex video trending in social media.

The indefinite suspension takes immediate effect.

Udo-Udom would remain under sanction pending the outcome of a Disciplinary Panel constituted by the university to investigate the incident, according to a Tuesday statement by UNN Public Relations Officer (PRO), Chief Okwun Omeaku.

A lecturer with the General Studies division, an apparently half-clad Udo-Udom was videoed in a room soliciting sex from a female student.

Mr. Chris Alumona, the Chief Security Officer of UNN, said the lecturer had been arrested and handed over to the police.

Alumona said his office acted on tip-off from UNN Department of Students Affairs on what was happening on Monday in Udom’s office

UNN PRO’s statement said: “UNN is among the few universities in the country that has a sexual harassment policy, which guides the relationship between our staff and students.

“As a university, we are committed to protecting our students from any form of abuse and exploitation.

” The university management will not hesitate to punish Udoudom , according to our rules, if he is found guilty by our disciplinary panel.”

The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has said it would not oppose any sanction against Udo-Udom.

Dr. Oyibo Eze, Chairperson of ASUU, University of Nigeria Nsukka, (UNN) said this in Nsukka on Tuesday while reacting to the alleged attempt by a lecturer in UNN to have sex with a female student in his office on Monday.

He said: “ASUU will not oppose any sanction if after investigations, the suspect is found guilty of allegation to have attempted to have sex with a female student in his office.

“We should all know that every action has its consequences.”

He said that ASUU condemned the alleged act by the lecturer identified as Mr. David Udom-Udom of the Social Science Unit, School of General Studies (GS) of the UNN.

“I saw the trending video of the alleged act yesterday and this morning I went to GS department and confirmed the incident in the viral video on Monday.

“Lecturers should see students as their children by displaying high sense of discipline, morality and avoid asking sex for mark.

“It is condemnable and that is what happens when a dog eats the bone hung on its neck.

“Our job as lecturers is to teach students not to harass them sexually,” he said.

Reacting to the incident, Comrade Enoch Utazi, the President, Students Union Government (SUG) of the UNN, also condemned the alleged act by Udom to have sex with a student for mark.

Utazi said SUG would follow the matter to its logical conclusion to ensure that the affected randy lecturer was punished according to rules and regulations of the university.

“SUG will ensure this randy lecturer is punished to serve as deterrent to others who exploit female students sexually in order to give them mark,” Utazi said.
