Rivers Poly Suspends Lecturer over Alleged Sexual Harassment

The authorities of Elechi Amadi Polytechnic Rumuola, Rivers State, has suspended one of its lecturer, Tamunotonye Solomon, over allegedly sexually harassing a student.

According to a report by Punch, the lecturer who has been suspended for three months had two weeks ago argued with one Blessing Audu, a 200l student over sexual harassment.

While Blessing had claimed that the lecturer accused her of stealing his N250,000, after he refused his marriage proposal, the lecturer described the allegation as a blackmail, saying he arrested the former because she stole his money and some office property.

The suspension was communicated to the Lecturer through a statement signed by the Institution’s Registrar, Chris Woke.

The statement reads, “The Management of Captain Elechi Amadi Polytechnic Rumuola, Port Harcourt is irked by the report in certain section of the media and disassociates itself completely from the alleged conduct of its staff, Mr Tamunotonye Zoe Solomon

“The Management of Captain Elechi Amadi Polytechnic Rumuola Port Harcourt has, therefore, suspended Mr Tamunotonye Zoe Solomon for three months with effect from 10 January 2022, in connection with allegations of harassment and exploitation of a female student and other acts of misconduct prejudicial to the good name of the Polytechnic.

“Management has also set up an investigative committee to investigate the allegations. The Committee has one month to submit its report to Management.”
