While confirming the suspension of Udo-Udom in a statement issued late Tuesday, the UNN PRO said institution had a zero tolerance for sexual misconducts involving either staff members or students.

“UNN is among the few universities in the country that has a sexual harassment policy, which guides the relationship between our staff and students.

“As a university, we are committed to protecting our students from any form of abuse and exploitation.

” The university management will not hesitate to punish Udoudom , according to our rules, if he is found guilty by our disciplinary panel,” he said.

Meawhile, the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has said it would not oppose any sanction against Udo-Udom.

“ASUU will not oppose any sanction if after investigations, the suspect is found guilty of allegation to have attempted to have sex with a female student in his office.

“We should all know that every action has its consequences,” he said.

He said that ASUU condemned the alleged act by the lecturer identified as Mr. David Udom-Udom of the Social Science Unit, School of General Studies (GS) of the UNN.

“I saw the trending video of the alleged act yesterday and this morning I went to GS department and confirmed the incident in the viral video on Monday.

“Lecturers should see students as their children by displaying high sense of discipline, morality and avoid asking sex for mark.

“It is condemnable and that is what happens when a dog eats the bone hung on its neck.

“Our job as lecturers is to teach students not to harass them sexually,” he said.

Reacting to the incident, Comrade Enoch Utazi, the President, Students Union Government (SUG) of the UNN, also condemned the alleged act by Udom to have sex with a student for mark.

Utazi said SUG would follow the matter to its logical conclusion to ensure that the affected randy lecturer was punished according to rules and regulations of the university.

“SUG will ensure this randy lecturer is punished to serve as deterrent to others who exploit female students sexually in order to give them mark,” Utazi said.
