Abia varsity students accuse female professor of medicine of sexual harassment

Students from the college of Medicine and  the Public Health Department of the Abia State University have accused their Head of Department, Professor Ezinne Enwereji, of sexual harassment.

In a letter seen by Peoples Gazette, the students petitioned the institution’s management, detailing their grievances against Mrs Enwereji and another lecturer, Lois Ndu Agumuo.

The students alleged that the duo were in the habit of sexually exploiting students by fondling them’ -both male and female- private parts in search of explicit materials during examinations.

They also accused the HOD of deliberately conniving with Mrs Agumuo to fail them en masse in her course while failing to accord them adequate tutoring.

A student from the department who spoke to The Gazette by phone but craved anonymity for fear of retribution said she has been a victim of ill treatment from Mrs Enwereji.

“Honestly, we are suffering in that department,” the student lamented. “Can you imagine our HOD wrote on someone’s script during an exam: ‘You will never graduate till you die’?”


“She also touches our breasts and private parts, both males and females; she and one Mrs Lois Ndu Agumuo,” she added.

The students said during one of their protests, a spokesperson for the university’s vice chancellor advised them to articulate their complaints in a letter.

When reached by The Gazette, the Dean of Students Affairs in the university, Professor Livy Nwokeocha, declined comments saying it was an internal issue that would be resolved amicably.

However some students confided  to intel Region that the sexual allegation was as a result of the HOD’s high handedness,  and it was a form of getting back at her because she was strict 

According to her, the HOD is obsessed with seeing students fail, that is her only source of happiness. She added
