A student of the Federal University of Lafia, Nasarawa State (name withheld), has been expelled from the school for allegedly impregnating his lecturer.
The student, who was studying computer science, was expelled after facing the University’s disciplinary board which found him guilty.
The disciplinary committee said the news of a student impregnating his lecturer is capable of tarnishing the image of the institution, adding that the promiscuous behaviour also watered down the dignity and integrity of the lecturer and negate the codes that regulate the teacher versus student interaction.
But, the expelled student has complained bitterly about the decision of the school authorities, arguing that the decision was too harsh as he didn’t take the action on his own.
In his narration of events, he said the lecturer had convinced him to sleep with her and that he could not turn down the offer that came with harsh penalties from the lecturer. He described the lecturer as beautiful.
Some people who reacted to the entire episode have criticized the decision of the disciplinary team, saying that there is nothing wrong with a consensual love relationship between the two adults.
They criticized the level of self-respect for the lecturers and the codes that regulate the teacher versus student interaction.
