The Commissioner of Police, Idowu Owohunmi, has ordered the arrest of a University of Lagos, UNILAG, lecturer accused of raping a 20-year-old student of the institution.

The arrest warrant was issued by the CP through the state High Court and with the knowledge of the Vice Chancellor of the university.

The student, whose name has been withheld, had alleged that the incident occurred when she visited the lecturer in the office to sort out issues about her results.

A non-governmental organization, Inclusive Social Welfare and Empowerment Foundation, where the victim reported the case, said rather than the lecturer attending to the undergraduate’s result issues, he allegedly raped her on August 16, 2023.

The state police public relations officer, Benjamin Hundeyin, confirmed the incident, saying, “He is to appear in court in the coming days.”

Reacting, the spokesperson for UNILAG, Adejoke Alaga-Ibraheem, said that the university was aware of an investigation involving an employee of the university.

She said, “UNILAG Management, on August 28, received a letter from the Nigeria Police Force, inviting an employee of the university for questioning. The employee was immediately informed of the development and advised to comply.

“On August 29, the employee complied. While we are not yet privy to the full details of the incident that led to the arrest of the employee, we are fully aware that the investigation is ongoing and we are cooperating with security agencies to ensure that the matter is resolved in the interest of justice.”
