Kaduna State University

The management of the Kaduna State University, KASU, has terminated the appointment of Dr. Idowu Abbas, a Lecturer of the Geography Department, over allegations of sexual harassment.

The Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Academic) of the school, Prof. Abdullahi Ashafa, disclosed this in a statement in Kaduna on Friday.

Ashafa said Dr Abbas’s appointment was terminated after the university’s Senior Staff Disciplinary Committee, chaired by the Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Administration), investigated the alleged sexual harassment against the lecturer.


He said the report of the investigating committee was presented at the 217th Management Meeting of the institution on Jan. 12.

Part of the statement read: “According to the report, Abbas confessed in his testimony to have touched and hugged a female student he was supervising her project from behind against her will when she went to his office to discuss her project.


“His testimonies also revealed other nasty and randy misbehavior he exhibited to the student.”

According to Ashafa, such gross misconduct violated Section 8.7 Paragraph (f) of the Administrative and Academic Regulations in Kaduna State University and punishable by dismissal and/or termination of appointment.
