IMSU probes lecturer caught in sex-for-grade scandal

Imo State University, Owerri (IMSU) has begun probing a sex-for-grade incident involving the head of department of Biochemistry, Prof. Emmanuel Agumuo.

The HoD was arrested unclad in a video which has since gone viral while attempting to have sex with one of his students.

“The female student, who is about getting married, had issues with her result after her mates had graduated. She approached her head of the department, but he demanded N150,000 bribe, which she paid. The professor also demanded sex from her,” a source told PUNCH.

“The professor rejected the girl’s plea that she was getting married soon. The girl then played along with the aid of security men. The don was arrested naked in a room with the girl. Of course, the nude video is all over the Internet.”

The university said a committee had been set up to investigate the incident.

IMSU spokesperson Ralph Obinjoku said on Wednesday: “We just rose from an expanded management meeting and I want to tell you that a committee has been set up to investigate the authenticity or otherwise of the nude video which had one of our lecturers.”

He assured that the university was treating the incident seriously, adding that IMSU does not tolerate sex-for-grades.
