How UNILAG Lecturer Allegedly Raped Student

A lecturer at the University of Lagos, Akoka, has been accused of raping a female undergraduate student (name withheld).

According to the student, the lecturer, Dr Kadiri, committed the crime in his office, when she visited him to sort out issues about her results.

The victim reported the case to a non-governmental organisation, Inclusive Social Welfare and Empowerment Foundation.

According to the organisation, rather than the lecturer attending to the undergraduate’s result issues, he allegedly raped her on August 16, 2023.

The case was forwarded to the Gender Unit of the state police command and through the OC Gender, the state CP, Idowu Owohunwa, issued a warrant of arrest for the lecturer through the state High Court and involved the Vice Chancellor of the university.

Confirming this, the state Police Public Relations Officer, Benjamin Hundeyin, said, “He is to appear in court in the coming days.”

Reacting, the spokesperson for UNILAG, Adejoke Alaga-Ibraheem, said that the university was aware of an investigation involving an employee of the university.

She said, “UNILAG Management, on August 28, received a letter from the Nigeria Police Force, inviting an employee of the university for questioning. The employee was immediately informed of the development and advised to comply.

“On August 29, the employee complied. While we are not yet privy to the full details of the incident that led to the arrest of the employee, we are fully aware that the investigation is ongoing and we are cooperating with security agencies to ensure that the matter is resolved in the interest of justice.”

Meanwhile, the Kaduna State Police Command has arrested 13 suspected kidnappers and killed four in the past 30 days.

The command’s acting Public Relations Officer, ASP Nasir Hassan, made the disclosure at a news conference in Kaduna on Thursday.

According to him, the suspects were arrested based on intelligence reports. He added that the police killed four others on different occasions during the exchange of gunfire.

Hassan also disclosed that the command arrested no fewer than 10 suspected members of a street gang popularly known as Sara-Suka.

Items recovered from the suspects, according to him, include two AK-47 rifles, three locally made revolvers, two motorcycles, and 15 live cartridges.

Other items recovered were three mobile phones and three bags of dried leaves suspected to be hemp.

Hassan said that all the suspects would be charged in court upon the completion of investigations.
