Abia varsity female HOD accused of sexual harassment


Students in the Public Health Department of the Abia State University have accused their Head of Department, Professor Ezinne Enwereji, of sexual harassment, according to Peoples Gazette.

Citing a purported petition from the students to the institution’s management, the report said the petitioners accused Mrs Enwereji and another lecturer, Lois Ndu Agumuo of being fond of fondling students’ private parts both that of male and female in search of explicit materials during examinations.

They also reportedly accused the HOD of deliberately conniving with Mrs Agumuo to fail them en masse in her course while failing to accord them adequate tutoring.

“Honestly, we are suffering in that department,” the student lamented. “Can you imagine our HOD wrote on someone’s script during an exam: ‘You will never graduate till you die’?”

“She also touches our breasts and private parts, both males and females; she and one Mrs Lois Ndu Agumuo,” the publication quoted an unnamed student as saying.
