The Vice Chancellor of Ebonyi State University Abakaliki (EBSU), Professor Chigozie Ogbu, has warned lecturers and management staff of the University against sexually harassing the students of the institution, saying that his office would not hesitate to punish anybody caught in the heinous act.

Ogbu gave the warning on Friday in his office in Abakaliki while briefing newsmen on the recent developments in the institution.

He described sexual harassment as an embarrassment which he said must not happen under his watch.

He said he had directed a committee handling an alleged case of sexual harassment of students by some lecturers to speedily conclude their sittings and present their findings so as to ensure justice where necessary.

Commenting on the social media reports that the institution recently disengaged over 300 staff, the VC said the social media was misrepresenting the facts.

According to him, the institution only disengaged 63 staff following a staff audit.

He disclosed that those disengaged were found to have either falsified their ages, overstayed their legitimate duration in the school or were discovered to have entered the institution through fraudulent means.

He dismissed the insinuation that the disengagement was calculated to witch-hunt some persons because of their political leanings in the state, adding that the audit committee made up of people from the three senatorial zones of the state.

The VC enjoined the public to desist from reading political meanings out of the institution’s management decisions.
