An alleged randy lecturer at the Department of English, University of Ilorin, Dr Mohammed Idiagbon, has been removed as the Head of the Department for allegedly wooing one of the students of the institution.
Idiagbon was removed as the HoD after it became public knowledge that he allegedly intimidated and wooed the unnamed student. The lecturer had invited the student to his office and allegedly proposed romantic friendship with her.
One of the sources said the unnamed student recorded the conversation between her and the lecturer.
He said, “However, the lecturer did not rape the student, but only tried to intimidate her to become his lover.”
Another source said when the matter was reported to the authorities of the institution, a panel was set up to investigate the matter and the lecturer was queried.
She added that the lecturer was removed as the HoD to avoid interference while investigations continued.
According to her, the lecturer knowing the implication of his alleged action, resigned his appointment from the university.
She said, “The lecturer invited a student to his office. He wanted to date the student. It was not a case of rape. The student recorded the discussion and when the matter reached the authorities, the lecturer was removed as the HoD of English Department. He has even resigned from the university.”
