The University of Lagos, UNILAG, has disowned randy lecturer, Dr. Akin Baruwa, who raped an 18-year-old admission seeker.
He was said to have raped the young girl who is looking to be a student of the institution in his office on July 23, 2015.
Speaking with Punch, the Head, Information Unit of the university, Mr. Olagoke Oke, said Baruwa was not an employee of the institution.
Oke said no such name exists on the university’s employee list whether teaching or non-teaching.
“The said Dr. Baruwa is a not a member of staff of the university, whether teaching or non-teaching. He also does not belong to the part-time or full-time teaching staff of the school. His name is not on the master list of workers of the university. I have checked the staff list using his full name and initials and could not come up with any such name as of Friday, August 6, 2015.
“I have also checked the list of office accommodation given to members of staff of the university and his name is not there. There is no office allocation attached to such a name. How he reportedly entered the said office where the crime took place is what we are looking into as an institution.
“While we sympathise with the alleged victim, we are ready to cooperate with every agency of government to get to the root of the matter as soon as possible. As an institution, we do not support any act of violence, not even against women. Therefore, we will help to ensure that the case comes to a logical conclusion,” UNILAG PRO said.
Baruwa, currently in detention at the Kirikiri Prison, was arraigned before an Ikeja Magistrate’s Court, Lagos, on Thursday.
