The Head department of economics and statistics Dr Nafiu Lukman Abiodun, at Kabale University has been sacked after being found guilty of sexual harassment.
Abiodun was interdicted mid this year to pave way for investigations into complaints that he was demanding sex from female students in exchange for marks.
Reports indicate that Abiodun would automatically give retakes to female students that would turn down his advances until his luck run out when some of the female students recorded him demanding sex on the mobile phone.
In a November 11 letter addressed to Abiodun, the university secretary, Canon Johnson Munono Byaryantuma, says that investigations found him guilty of sexual harassment, failure to follow examination regulations, and professional guidance.
“I regret to inform you that the appointments board of Kabale University under Min.598160/AB/21122 found you guilty of sexual harassment, failure to follow examination regulations, and professional negligence. The board, therefore, directed you be severely reprimanded and your interdiction be lifted,” reads the letter.
He added that “The board further resolved not to renew your contract as a senior lecturer of statistics when it expires on 11 November 2022. You are therefore required to hand over all university property in your possession to the dean of the faculty of Economics and Management Science in the presence of the financial auditor.”
