Ugandan varsity dismisses Nigerian in sex-for-grades scandal


A Nigerian lecturer with the Kabale University in Uganda, Dr. Nafiu Lukman Abiodun, has been dismissed by the university board for involvement in a “sex-for-mark” scandal.

In a statement issued on Tuesday, the university said Abiodun who was the Head, Department of Economics and Statistics in the Faculty of Economics and Management Sciences, was found guilty of sexual harassment by a probe panel put in place to investigate several allegations levelled against him.

The lecturer was exposed when some of the female students in the department discreetly recorded him on phone demanding sex with a promise to pass them in examinations.
