Omanayin Yunusa Adinoyi, a lecturer in the Department of Geology in the Federal University of Technology, Minna, Niger state, has been dismissed by the management of the institution over sexual harassment.
Adinoyi is alleged to have sexually assaulted a female student in his department who took his course. An investigation was carried out after the case was reported and the outcome of the investigation led to his dismissal.
It was learnt that the dismissal was approved during the University Council’s 131st meeting presided over by the Vice Chancellor (VC), Prof. Abdullahi Bala. The decision was reached after the investigative panel found Adinoyi guilty of inappropriate relationship with a female student.
The VC said Adinoyi’s dismissal would serve as deterrent to others as “the university has taken further steps to ensure total elimination of sexual harassment in FUT, Minna community.”
