He also said: “The two lecturers got their ‘query’ yesterday and they are expected to respond within 24 hours”.

Public outcry

Also, following public outcry, the institution’s branch of Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) in a statement by its chairman, Dele Ashiru said “the development is very disturbing and unfortunate.

“We have appealed to our colleagues to understand that as lecturers, we stand in loco parentis (in the place of parents) to these students and must not be perceived in any way as not protective.”

“We condemn this act of shame in its entirety and want the matter to be thoroughly investigated and appropriate sanctions meted out to all those found culpable”, the statement read.
