Lagos - The management of the University of Lagos (UNILAG) has insisted that a lecturer, Dr Afeez Baruwa accused of raping an admission seeker in the school premises is not an employee of the institution, Punch reports.
The Vice-Chancellor of the University of Lagos, Prof. Rahamon Bello made the denial at a briefing on Monday.
He said the university had no relationship with Baruwa, hence it could not directly punish him as it did when its personnel were involved in sexual harassment in the past.

The VC said the only formal relationship the university had with Baruwa was when he undertook his undergraduate and MSc programmes in Marketing at the institution’s Distance Learning Institute.
Bello, who however, admitted that Baruwa was engaged by the DLI, noted that the term of his contract did not include providing him an office facility.
Baruwa allegedly raped an 18-year-old female who was seeking admission to the university.
