IMSU student leaders write IGP over prof accused of sex-for-marks

Leaders of Progressive Graduates of Chemistry and Industrial Chemistry of Imo State University (IMSU) have written to the Inspector General of Police Mohammad Adamu over allegation that a professor Victor Njoku of chemistry department was involved in sex-for-marks scandal.

Njoku had appeared in a viral video which was circulated all over campus where he is seen nude.

The leaders Munonye Obinna and Frank Ufomadu said on Friday that they would petition the IGP after their seven-day ultimatum given to IMSU students had elapsed without any evidence.

The group leaders had claimed that the private residence of the lecturer was invaded by character assassins and a naked video of Njoku was taken and sent out to the social media.

The time given for the accusers to come forward elapsed on September 26.

“No single student has either come in public or secret to testify to the viral allegation of sex for marks levelled against one of the most respected Senior Lecturers in Imo State University, Prof. Njoku Victor,” the group said.

“We the progressive graduates of chemistry and industrial chemistry of Imo State University wish to notify the entire Imo State University community that Prof. Njoku has been vindicated as it is now very convincingly clear to all that Prof. Njoku Victor has never involved in sex for mark since he started work in Imo State University till date.

“We hereby call on publishers of various media houses, hosts of online websites and social media to retract, refute and expunge all negative forms of stories, nude pictures and videos reportedly recorded and published against the good image of Prof. Njoku Victor, within the next 10 days or face the wrath of the law.

“We shall officially petition the Inspector General of police to fish out all those behind the dastard act and ensure they are prosecuted for breach of fundamental human right, sexual harassment and criminal invasion under section 37 of the 1999 constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.”
