Unizik Lecturer To Face Panel Over Assault on Student

by Admin

In reaction to the viral news of a lecturer assaulting a student of Nnamdi Azikiwe University the University Management has reacted by inviting the Lecturer Dr Olisa Maduka of the Department of Economics to face a disciplinary panel over his careless action of physically assaulting a student for failing to dress in a certain way.

Information getting to us has it that the said lecturer went as far as seizing personal belongings of the other students which included shoes and slippers for failing to wear Ankara made clothes to school, students who spoke in anonymity said that this is not the first time the said lecturer is acting in a very hostile manner towards students.

The Dean of the Faculty of Social Sciences in the University Prof. Uche Nwogwugwu while speaking on this matter stated as follows;

A thorough investigation shall be conducted on the matter and if the allegations are true, the lecturer will definitely face the wrath of the Vice Chancellor

There is need to find out the actual reason behind the beaten of the female student. If it is confirmed to be true the lecturer will not go unpunished.

It is true that the University management under the leadership of the VC, Prof. Charles Esimone, instituted a law prohibiting indecent dressing on campus, that does not in anyway empower any lecturer or staff of the Institution to take laws into their hands without recourse to authorities.

the university management would continue to do all within its powers to protect the rights and welfare of students.

The assaulted student as we gathered is still in pains and receiving treatment, we hope justice will be served as this will serve as a deterrent to lecturers who a nursing treating students in a similar way.
