The management of University of Calabar (UNICAL), says some lecturers and departments in the institution have resorted to giving scripts to students to write examinations at homes, hotels and relaxation centres.
In a memorandum dated August 10, 2021, and signed by the deputy vice-chancellor, Administration, Professor Michael Peter Okom, the management of UNICAL lamented what it described as “obnoxious and abhorrable acts of sorting, extortions and sex for grades/sexual harassments” going on in the institution.
“It has come to the knowledge of Management that some teaching staff have revived the obnoxious and abhorrable acts of sorting, extortion and sex for grades/sexual harassment,” the memorandum reads.
“Some departments and lecturers have been specifically fingered and investigations have commenced. Management also has information to the effect that lecturers have resorted to giving students scripts to write exams at homes, hotels and relaxation places.
“All those involved in these despicable activities are hereby warned to desist and repent. In fact, they will soon be invited to interact with the Disciplinary Committee.”
