Omanayin Yunusa Adinoyi, a lecturer from the Department of Geology, has been dismissed by the management of the Federal University of Technology (FUT), Minna, Niger State, over sexual harassment.
The dismissal followed the outcome of the investigation on an alleged sexual assault on a female student. It was learned that the dismissal was approved during the University Council’s 131st meeting presided over by the Vice Chancellor (VC), Prof. Abdullahi Bala.
The alleged sexual harassment was against a female student in the same department who took a course taught by Adinoyi. The decision was reached after the investigative panel found Adinoyi guilty of an inappropriate relationship with the girl.
The VC said Adinoyi’s dismissal would serve as a deterrent to others as “the university has taken further steps to ensure total elimination of sexual harassment in the school.
