A lecturer at Ahmadu Bello University, Professor David Kolo has reportedly been fired by the University for sexually harassing female students.
This followed the endorsement of the recommendation of a disciplinary committee set up to investigate Professor Kolo of ABU’s faculty of education by the governing council of the university.
Kolo was earlier sentenced to two months imprisonment by a court in Jigawa State, after he was found guilty of attempting to force his female student to accept his sex advances.
The student, who is a married woman, had through her husband informed security agents. An impeccable source, close to the ABU’s governing council, said the council had on Wednesday, during its meeting, approved the dismissal of the professor.
In his reaction to the whole episode, the chairman of ABU-ASUU, Dr. Muhammad Kabir Aliyu, said ASUU is a responsible organization, and as such it frowns at any act that would demean the association.
“I heard about the setting up of the council committee and the invitation extended to the Professor, but I am not a member. We always advise our members not to engage in acts that would demean their character and that of our organization. Therefore, we are not happy with what the Professor did. I am not in town, so, I did not hear about the dismissal.” [360nobs]
