“We cannot allow our kids’ lives to be damaged, as the majority of abuses endanger the lives of their victims.
It was unfortunate to see certain professors, who were tasked with protecting female students, become one of their difficulties.
This is a concern for universities throughout Nigeria, not just the University of Abuja.
Several investigations are also being conducted by a committee formed to handle the issue “he added.
