Two lecturers of the Imo State University have been suspended by the school after they were caught, quite literally, with their pants down with students.
The incidents, which are speculated to be a sex-for-grade exchanges with a female student, were recorded on video and distributed online. And from the looks of it, the videos might just end their careers.
In one video which trended online, the lecturers were caught in an intimate position with their students.
Management of the university has taken a decision to suspend the duo pending further investigations.
Ralph Njoku Obi, a spokesman for the university, confirmed that the two, Victor Obinna Njoku, a professor in the Chemistry Department, and Emmanuel Esogbuonye Agomuo of the Biochemistry Department, were in police custody. He also added that they had been suspended pending the findings of a committee investigation into the matter.
“We just came out of an expanded management meeting now. Management resolved to set up a panel to look into the veracity of the content of the video clips but as it stands now, the two lecturers have been suspended so they can give us ample room to do a proper investigation into the matter.”
“It is believed that the trending video clips may have again exposed the ugly underworld of sex-for-grade syndicates operating in the Imo State University, Owerri.”
Although the courts are yet to rule on the matter, the video evidence against them seems very incriminating, especially that of Mr. Njoku which showed him caught attempting to kiss the female student.
