Lecturer gets three months suspension over ‘sexual harassment’

0

The Captain Elechi Amadi Polytechnic, Port Harcourt said one of its lecturers, Tamunotonye Solomon has been suspended for three months over allegations of sexual harassment of female student.

Recall that the lecturer, Solomon and the 200-level female student, Blessing Audu have traded words openly in the media, stating their side of the issue.

While Blessing had claimed that the lecturer accused her of stealing his N250,000, after he refused his marriage proposal, the lecturer described the allegation as a blackmail, saying he arrested the former because she stole his money and some office property.

But the management of the Polytechnic in a statement signed by its Registrar, Chris Woke, expressed annoyance with the development and dissociated itself from the alleged conduct of its staff.
