Chairman of the Kano State Public Complaints and Anti-Corruption Commission (PCACC) Muhyu Magaji has explained how the commission organized a sting operation that led to the arrest of Ali Shehu, a lecturer at the Kano State School of Technology, who pleaded guilty to sexually harassing a female student.

Speaking to journalists at his office, Mr Magaji said his agency first received a complaint from the female student (name withheld), who alleged that Mr Shehu had been pestering her for sex in exchange for passing her in her exams.

He said the female student reported that the lecturer, who is attached to the Computer Science department had been communicating with her through online messaging platform Whatsapp and threatening her if she did not accept his sexual demands.

Mr Magaji added that the student recorded all the conversations she had with the lecturer and reported him to the commission after he asked her to meet with him in person.

“That was when the commission arranged its men and attached them to the student to follow her to where he asked her to meet him.

“When our people arrived at the meeting point, they saw the lecturer already waiting for the student, with her exams booklet in his hands, ready to award her marks once she accepted his amorous demands,” he said.

Earlier, Mr Magaji noted that his agency had gotten the support of Mr Shehu’s employers on the activities of the randy lecturer and the efforts to arrest him.

Kano Focus recalls that the sex pest was nabbed at Ummi Plaza by the anti-corruption agency officials, who caught him red handed allegedly inserting his hands in his victim’s private part.

Meanwhile, the Kano State Polytechnic (to which School of Technology is attached) has set up a committee to investigate Mr Shehu, who was remanded in prison custody by a magistrate court after he pleaded guilty to sexual harassment and breach of trust.

Rector of the Polytechnic, Mukhtar Atiku Kurawa told Kano Focus in an exclusive interview that the committee would also investigate another lecturer Aminu Chedi who is accused of extorting money from students.

Mr Chedi is standing trial for a one count charge of collecting gratification in the course of carrying out his official duty.
