Lecturer Gets Three Months Suspension Over Alleged Sexual Harassment

Ola ‘Kiya, Reporting

A lecturer, Solomon Tamunotonye, with the Captain Elechi Amadi Polytechnic, Port Harcourt, Rivers State, has been slammed with three months suspension over alleged sexual harassments of female students.

Management of the institution made the announcement in a statement made available to journalists.

The lecturer, Tamunotonye, and a 200-level female student, reportedly had altercations in the media over a missing money.

The student claimed that the lecturer had accused her of stealing his N250,000 after she refused his marriage proposal.

The lecturer, on the other hand, described the allegation as a blackmail, saying he arrested the lady because she stole his money and some office property.

In a statement signed by the Registrar of the institution, Chris Woke, the institution expressed angst over the development and dissociated itself from the alleged misconduct of the lecturer.

“The management of the Captain Elechi Amadi Polytechnic, Rumuola, Port Harcourt, is irked by the report in certain sections of the media and dissociates itself completely from the alleged conduct of its staff member, Mr Tamunotonye Zoe Solomon.

“The management of the Captain Elechi Amadi Polytechnic, Rumuola, Port Harcourt, has therefore suspended Mr Tamunotonye Zoe Solomon for three months with effect from January 10, 2022 in connection with allegations of harassment and exploitation of a female student and other acts of misconduct prejudicial to the good name of the polytechnic,” the statement read in part.
