UNICAL student testifies against professor over alleged sexual harassment
This tragic incident is on the heels of the controversy that greeted UNICAL in the third quarter of 2023 when some students from the Faculty of Law protested against Prof. Cyril Ndifon, the dean of the faculty.
The students alleged that Prof Ndifon had been sexually molesting female students in the faculty in his office.
This allegation sparked outrage on campus and became a national issue, leading to the inauguration of a panel set up by the management of UNICAL to investigate the allegations levelled against the professor.
Passed and present students appeared before the panel to testify against the embattled professor, who was later found guilty of gross misconduct and was dismissed.
