The Imo State University, Owerri, (IMSU) has set up a committee to investigate the video footage in which the Head of Department of Biochemistry of the institution, Prof. Emmanuel Agumuo, was allegedly having sex with one of his students.
In the viral footage, Prof. Emmanuel Agumuo, was handcuffed and arrested by plain-clothed security men.
OsmekNews gathered that, apart from allegedly collecting N150,000 as bribe from the female student, the HoD also demanded sex from her in order to pass her.
Responding to the scandal, the university said that it had set up a committee to investigate the authenticity or otherwise of the video allegedly involving one of its lecturers.
The Public Relations Officer, IMSU, Ralph Obinjoku, who spoke to our correspondent on Wednesday, said the management was not taking the development with kid gloves.
He said anybody found culpable would not be spared by the management.
“We just rose from an expanded management meeting and I want to tell you that a committee has been set up to investigate the authenticity or otherwise of the nude video, which had one of our lecturers.
“The university is not taking the development for granted and the vice-chancellor has asked the committee to do a thorough job. Our university does not tolerate sex-for-mark or any act that lowers the excellent academic standard of our citadel of learning.”
