Prof Ndifon Shuns Probe Panel Invitation 4 Times
The Dean of the Faculty of Law, University of Calabar (UNICAL), Cross River State, Prof. Cyril Ndifon, accused of sexual harassment by female students of the faculty failed to appear before the panel constituted by the university to investigate the allegations.
Female students of the faculty of law at UNICAL staged a protest in the University, demanding the immediate removal of Ndifon for allegedly sexually harassing them.
Though Ndifon had claimed that the allegation of sexual harassment was plotted against him because he won the faculty election, the university management suspended him and constituted a panel to investigate the allegation.
However, a source at the school on Sunday told press that Ndifon refused to appear before the panel after four consecutive invitations were extended to him.
“He did not appear before the panel. He was given four chances and he didn’t appear. His arrogance will not allow him to appear. He knows there is no way out for him in this case. I just heard from the lawyer representing both current and past students of the faculty that the public sitting has closed,” the source said.
