On the quest of fighting sexual molestation in our tertiary institutions, the Ignatius Ajuru University of Education (IAUE) has suspended a lecturer, Dr.



Rowland Igwe, indefinitely for allegedly getting a student of the institution pregnant, after a series of intimidation and sexual assault.

Vice-Chancellor of the University, Prof. Ozo-Mekuri Ndimele, said this in his official twitter handle on Friday.

The VC said the undergraduate suffered health complications as a result of the pregnancy, while the matter has been referred to the institution’s Senate Committee on Staff Disciplinary Matters for further investigation.

The statement reads, “The Management of the Ignatius Ajuru University of Education has placed Dr. Rowland Uchechukwu Igwe of the Department of Sociology on an indefinite suspension on an allegation of serial intimidation, sexual harassment and undue canal knowledge of a female undergraduate which resulted in her impregnation and other complications.

“The matter has been referred to the Council-Senate Committee on staff disciplinary matters for further investigation,” it stated.

Sexual harassment has been a disturbing issue in many tertiary institutions across the country, with several stakeholders, including the National Assembly prescribing various punishments for culprits.
