The University of Lagos, UNILAG, Fact Finding Panel set up to look into the allegation of sexual harassment levelled against a male lecturer in the Department of English, Professor S. Awonusi has said that the female victim graduated in 2015/2016 academic session.

In a release from the institution’s Information Unit, yesterday said: ”The alleged victim was identified as Miss Joy Nwanna by Profesor Awonusi in the course of his interactions with the Panel.

”Student records of Miss Joy Nwanna reveal that she was admitted into the Department of English as a direct entry student in the 2012/2013 session. She graduated from the University in 2015/2016 academic session.”

According to the Management, all attempts made by the Fact Finding Panel to contact Miss Nwanna by the telephone numbers in her student records and by e-mail proved abortive.

It said: ”The Panel also attempted to contact Linda Ikeji the originator of the story to convince the alleged victim to come forward but Linda Ikeji was not forthcoming in that regard.”

It explained that the Panel conducted its investigations and recently submitted its report, adding that the preliminary findings indicate that the allegation of sexual harassment was not substantiated by the alleged victim or any other person.

”The preliminary investigations have raised certain questions and issues that need to be investigated further. Investigations are ongoing. The University is making efforts to confirm the authenticity or otherwise of the pictures that were released. The University also requires Miss Joy Nwanna to come forward to substantiate the allegations.”

You will recall that in May, 2018 the attention of the University Management was drawn to a publication on Linda ikeji’s blog. The publication, which was accompanied by semi-nude photographs of a man, contained allegations of sexual harassment against a lecturer in the Department of English. The lecturer was identified as Professor S. Awonusi, a Professor in the Department of English.
