Covenant University, Ota, Ogun state, is trending on social media over allegations of rape against its lecturers who hide behind school laws to assault female students.
WikkiTimes learnt this in a Twitter post by one Tosin Akinbo. According to a screenshot Akinbo tweeted, a student had gone into a coma after aborting a pregnancy she “conceived” from the school’s head of the disciplinary committee.
“The staff in covenant university are raping the students. They’ll set stupid rules and if the students should break it they’ll sleep with them in exchange for their studentship,” Akinbo tweeted. “A girl is in a coma now. She did an abortion for the head of the student disciplinary council.”
“He got her pregnant and still expelled her,” he continued. “So many students there are being abused.”
Those who dared challenge the odds were expelled from school, according to the Akinbo.
Covenant University is a private Christian institution in Ota, Ogun State, Nigeria. It is affiliated with Living Faith Church Worldwide.
An enquiry sent to the school’s official email address had not been responded to as of press time.
In March 2021, Dr Stephen Ukenna, a 41-year-old lecturer in the Department of Business Management at Covenant University, was arrested by the police for allegedly raping a 17-year-old student of the institution.
The lecturer was arrested following a complaint at Ota Area Command by the victim’s parents.
According to the parents, their daughter reported the suspect to them, saying he invited her to his office under the pretence of a surprise birthday party by a friend.
However, on getting to the office, he allegedly had forceful carnal knowledge of the lady on top of his table.
On interrogation, the lecturer confessed the allegations to the police.
