“Management is oblivious of its responsibility of ensuring proper conduct by both staff and students of the University, and has directed that the lecturer be issued with a query and placed on interdiction pending the conclusion of investigations by the police,” she said.

The UNIBEN image maker noted that the action is in line with internal mechanisms as contained in the Regulations Governing the Service of Senior Staff of the University, 2017.

“We can assure staff, students, parents and other stakeholders that investigations will be pursued to its logical conclusion to ensure that justice is served,” Ehanire added.
