From Citizen Reporter

Ambrose Alli University, Ekpoma, notorious for sex-for-grade scandals

is convulsing over the alleged brazen sexual harassment of one Miss

Joy Osa Edobor, a student of Political Science who was kept in the

institution for upward of 12 years in a course of study that normally

would run for four years.


A check at the university by us revealed that sexual harassment is a

tradition  in the university where students are forced to cough out

between N4,000/N5,000 to pass each course or made themselves available

for sexual gratification with the lecturers. In addition, students are

forced to pay between N20,000/N150,000 for projects, depending on the



These perverse culture of extortion of the students have been going on

with official in deference until Miss Joy Edobor took a step of

courage by protesting the humiliating treatments handed out to her by

those who are supposed help in moulding her future.

The father of Miss Joy Edobor, Mr Edobor, out of frustration

petitioned the Independent Corrupt Practices and other related

offences Commission, ICPC on the fate of his daughter in the hands of

insensitive officials of Ambrose Alli University. In his petition, he

stated how the outing going Vice Chancellor, Prof. Cordelia Agbebaku

and her spouse, Prof. Phillip Enahoro Agbebaku frustrated efforts made

by the department and faculty to graduate his daughter.


It was said that the Vice Chancellor shamefully blocked all efforts at

graduating Miss Joy Edobor in order to protect her sexually perverse

husband, Prof Phillip Agbebaku who held on to Miss Joy’s results as a

former Head of Department, (HOD) and Prof of Political Science. Miss

Joy had alleged that her refusal to enter into an amorous relationship

with Prof. Agbebaku made him to visit her with reprisals; such as

failing her, declaring her results missing and with constant verbal



When Mr Edobor and his daughter realised the futility of getting

justice in Ambrose Alli University, they turned to ICPC for succour.

Having received the pathetic and heart rendering petition of Miss Joy

Edobor, the ICPC commenced investigation amidst bureaucratic delays

and foot dragging. The Commission, eventually came out with a report

that Prof Agbebaku will soon be prosecuted along with his

co-travellers in the university.


Chairman of the Independent Corrupt Pratices and other related

offences Commission (ICPC), Mr Ekpo Nta, why addressing a Senate

Committee revealed a few days ago that the commission had rescued a

female undergraduate of the Ambrose Ali University, Ekpoma, who had

spent 12 years on the campus for refusing sexual advances. The ICPC

hinted that the individuals involved will be prosecuted soon.


“Right now, ICPC is working on prosecuting all the lecturers and

officials involved in the stupid act. The commission had focused its

torchlight on the universities, where it has closed down over 26

illegal degree-awarding institutions and rescued a number of students

being victimised”, he said.


The ICPC boss, who stated this while appearing before the Senator

Victor Lar-led Committee on the Commission said that 50 out of the 156

major contractors to the Ministry of Works had been discovered to have

submitted forged tax certificates.


A further investigation revealed that the Department of Political

Science had been set alight twice in the bid to destroy material

evidence. The first inferno was alleged to have be masterminded by a

lecturer who, as an examination officer, wanted to cover up his

misdeed. The department was torched a second time in May 2014 after a

meeting where members of the department were informed of an impending

visit of officials from the ICPC to the department.


Many who read or heard about the ICPC Chairman’s enthusiastic comments

on the prosecution of Prof. Agbebaku and other involved in the

criminal desecration of the citadel  of learning are worried that the

Commission may just be grandstanding, after all. In the past, similar

cases involving high placed individuals have been swept under the



The Governing Council of the university, chaired by Prof. Gregory

Akenzua appears to be lethargic over these embarrassing developments.

The seemingly indifferent disposition of the Governing Council of the

university is a source of concern to members of the university

community and worried public.


There is palpable apprehension in the university whether the Governing

Council can rise up to the occasion by disciplining the lecturers,

including the out going Vice Chancellor and her husband for their

alleged acts, which have severely damaged the reputation of the

institution in the sense that this is about the first time a sitting

Vice Chancellor would be an accessory to a heinous academic crime.


Calls put across to the Chairman of Council, Prof Akenzua and text

messages to his mobile number were not responded to as the time of

going to the press.


In spite of the allegations of banal crimes hovering over the VC’s and

her husband’s head, they keep lobbying to have her tenure elongated

so that they could perpetuate more evils. The world is watching what

will be the response of the Governing Council and the Visitor who have

been romancing corruption.



  1. If ICPC does not answer swiftly, the students should gather together and beat up all the lecturers involved. I mean beat them to pulp and chase them out of the campus. Bad lecturers should learn their lessons.

    I don’t understand why many students has are not looking for ways to protect themselves and fellow students from lecturers’ victimisation

  3. Nigerians are making it look like Ambrose Alli university is the only place this thing happens, it has pervaded every Nigerian university for decades now.
    If ICPC is to wade into this kind of problem, it will not have time to tackle real issues. The university students have the power to stop this practice, even though most of them encourage it by refusing to focus on their studies. It is easier to make N20k on a good weekend and pay some lecturer N4k, than to study hard and pass your exams the right way. So, students take the easy, win-win way out.
    Really sad!!

  4. The recommendation above is the surest and the best way to go for the abuser randy teacher so that others may learn.Tufiakwa for those putting Nigeria in Distress that the Churches address every sunday in their special prayers.I amdone.
    Ogba Nkwa Special,

  5. how will this great evil be going on in our campus and no body boarded to inform the public, why??? In deed this lecturers are devils incarnate. please ICPC, make sure that they are duely punished for this wicked crime.
