case where a lecturer was caught naked trying to
sleep with a Delta State University » female
student, Miss Esther Omokinovo at Wembley

desires hence she decided to inform the police

The fiery student’s activist expressed her
dissatisfaction with the delay in apprehending
the suspect before a competent court of Justice.
She also hinted of the group’s intention to
petition the Inspector General of Police to take
over investigation of the matter. saying, “our
attorneys has been briefed accordingly”.
In that same vein, the umbrella body of all
female student groups in the country has
strongly urged the National Assembly to expedite
the legislative processes left in the passage of
the pending Sexual Harassment Prohibition bill
which has become neccesary due to the
important role it will play in serving victims from
the humiliation and inhumane treatment being
meted on female Students by randy lecturers,
adding that, ” this event has vindicated our position
at the public hearing of the bill recently, a position
which of course was stoutly opposed by ASUU “.
Micah stressed that the present legal lacuna is
only benefiting randy lecturers who may still be
set free after police investigations even when
found guilty as there is no relevant laws for now
to punish offenders of sexual harassment,
especially of female students.
The NFSAN President further stated that their
Association has drawn the attention of ASUU
National President, Prof. Biodun Ogunyemi to the
matter, reminding the larger society of ASUU’s
earlier position during the public hearing on the
Bill for an Act to Prohibit Sexual harassment that
it has not been receiving reports of sexual
harassment being committed by its members.
