Controversy As Covenant University Sacks Staff Over Sexual Assault Scandal, After Student Raises Alarm

Covenant University has sacked a member of staff accused of sexual assault.

A circulating chat shows insiders narrating how some employees coerce students into having sex.

Those mentioned include hall monitors, school clinic workers, and security personnel.

“The staff in Covenant University are raping the students”, a viral chat reads.

“They’ll set stupid rules and, if the students should break them, they sleep with them in exchange for their studentship.”

The anonymous individual said a girl was in coma after “an abortion for the head of the student disciplinary council”.

“He got her pregnant and still expelled her. So many students there are being abused”, the chat added.

The Alumni Committee of the private institution confirmed that they received the complaint last week.

The executive council said they waded in to understand the issues and what should be done.

“One of the people called out many times on social media appeared before the staff disciplinary committee. The management has terminated his employment,” a statement announced.

The council hinted that it would continue to meet the school management and update the public.

“A girl is in coma now. She did an abortion for the head of the student disciplinary council. He got her pregnant and still expelled her.

“So many students there are being abused. It’s a Christian university for crying out loud. Covenant university has hidden so many deaths,” the student stated.

This new development has sparked reactions on Twitter. Some Nigerians have heaped blame on the student for sleeping with the staff while others dragged the school authorities for the sexual misconduct.

A tweep, @June said: “Call out a school for what it is. Christian school or not, call out wrong everything happening… As much as you should.

“I don’t understand why “Christianity” itself is being blamed. Christianity has nothing to do here… If anything Christianity is a Victim here bec they’re+”

Another tweep @petite_nuel said she knows of a lecturer in the university who raped a student.

“I know of a lecturer in CU that raped a female student, to cut short, he’s facing the court.”

“So the students broke the school rules and further went on to accept sex for pardon from corrupt teachers…both students involved and teachers should be expelled from the school,” wrote @papakoboko

@AbbyVirtous tweeted: “Before bringing it to sm for clout…Against all odds have you gotten bishop oyedepo involve.. He doesn’t tolerate rubbish, if it meant carrying placard to honor entrance of faith tabernacle on sunday or youth chapel on mid week service cos what rubbish is this.”
