A Uganda based lecturer, Nafiu Lukman Abiodun, at the Kabale University in Uganda has been sacked for allegedly demanding sex in exchange for marks from students.

The Nigerian academic staff, who was the Head, Department of Economics and Statistics in the Faculty of Economics and Management Sciences, was found guilty of sexual harassment, according to the Uganda Radio Network (URN).

However, the lecturer was investigated after the management received complaints from female students that he was demanding sex from them in exchange for marks.

Abiodun, who allegedly caused those that refuse to retake courses, was exposed after some of them recorded him demanding sex on phone.

A letter dated November 11 by the Uniersity Secretary Canon Johnson Munono Byaryantuma conveyed the management’s decision.

It read, “I regret to inform you that the Appointments Board of Kabale University Under Min.598160/AB/21122 found you guilty of Sexual Harassment, failure to follow examination regulations, and professional negligence.

“The board therefore directed you be severely reprimanded and your interdiction be lifted”.

The university also resolved not to renew Abiodun’s contract as a senior lecturer of statistics.

He was therefore asked to hand over all the institution’s property to the Dean of Faculty of Economics and Management Science.

The Chancellor, Joy Constance Kwesiga, also confirmed the development, adding that they have information that Abiodun may file a lawsuit.
