Scandal Rocks Ahmadu Bello University As Hiv-positive Lecturer Allegedly R*pes Student

Despite punitive measures being taken by the management of the Ahmadu Bello University (ABU) in Zaria, many students are battling to overcome the trauma of sexual harassment and abuse by their lecturers. Daily Trust Saturday takes a look.

Asabe (not real name) was excited to secure admission into the famous Ahmadu Bello University (ABU), Zaria. She has however never envisaged that her life would be ruined while in the course of pursuing knowledge. To her chagrin, one of the people responsible for training her in character and learning, forcibly had carnal knowledge of her, in his office.

An inside source in the university confided in Daily Trust Saturday that the incident took place in the Faculty of Education: “The security unit of the university handled the case before it was taken over by the police. Every one of us was disturbed when it was discovered that the man was both HIV and hepatitis positive.”

It was learnt that the alleged victim is an 100-level student.

The source added: “When such incidents happen, we subject both the victim and the suspect to various tests. It was after the tests that this man was found to be both HIV and hepatitis positive. This aggravated the case, where the police completely took over the prosecution. We are all not happy, because this is cruel, for somebody who knows that he is carrying serious diseases, to rape an innocent girl.”

Whats your say on this?

  • The man should face the law!

    The girl should be taken for quick medical help, some hepatitis are curable while some are manageable, it depends on which one she contracted.

  • GOD SAVE US... thats so heartless and this is pure wickedness for someone that is aware that his a carrier of these deadly diseases to rape and what i want to say here is to call on parents to sensitise their wards to report any case of sexual advances. in this age of technology,there are many ways that a girl can generate evidence ..Rape alone is so cruel and wicked

  • When situation like this happens, the victim should be quickly put on post infection HIV drugs for 28days the least in as much as the days the day of the incident is not more than 3days. There is a chance she would not get infected with the virus if she was given the postART drug in time

  • Well,there should be long term jail for any lecturals who commit such crime,and for the nowadays student the mode of dressing of some students in the university is not encouraging and they should also be punished for it.

  • Same thing is happening everywhere and if reported without evidence you risk the chance of losing your admission. The lecturer should be seriously sanctioned and possibly jailed to serve as a warning to other erring lecturers of the institution.

His act is an act of wickedness knowing fully well he is positive he raped that lady and distroyed her life. He should serve as a warning to other lecturers who take advantage of girls

  • This is very sad and disheartening to hear. The lecturer should be charged and taken to court for that act. This country is no longer safe. You can't even trust and confide in your lecturers again. This man has tarnish the image of all male lecturers in Nigeria. A disgrace

  • I don't think that strike will cause any change.  But the way FG has been handling allowance issues has not been encouraging. I think they should renegotiate for the sake of the students.

  • First of all it is a crime to rape a woman and it is punishable by law.  

    Secondly I see it as an act if wickedness, an evil intention to rape a woman when he knows he is HIV positive. 

    Haba. God will punish him. 

    If it were just rape, bad as it is the lady still has hope but the chances that depression would kill her if not carefully monitored is about 80% because the man has successfully destroyed the young lady by making her HIV positive. 

    The man should be persecuted in the court of law.

  • The attitude put up by this lecturer is irritating. He is meant to be a role model to the students but has proved us wrong. As for the girl am really sorry for her. This so called lecturer should be brought to book and punished severely

  • This is stupid, annoying and senseless. This lecturer should be thrown into the ocean with a stone around his neck.

    like seriously the rape issues in the country is getting out of hand. Laws against it should be quickly implemented and enforced. Secondly, lecturers and university workers should periodically undergo HIV tests, it will keep them on their toes.

    Rape is a terrible sin and offense.

  • Some men wear wickedness in their body...haba...even when u know the danger of his crimes he still.went ahead..could it be as a result that he will soon die or rather it's not as if he is not learned enough to know that HIV has sustainable drugs that can guarantee long life......I really don't see any reason as to why he did what he did..but which ever way justice is needed he should face the law and be squarely punished!

  • If a man that knows him self well and having a good occupation involving in a rape case the man must be insane or spiritually caused, secondly he knows that he is a victim of these diseases and he still choose to spread it all over, if I want to name this act I will call it act of wickedness.

  • This is very cruel of the lecturer to ruin the girls life like that. It is bad enough that he raped her. That alone enough to cause her critical psychological damage but he did so knowing of his health condition. This lecturer deserves to be sued for fees incurred during the treatment of hepatitis and also should be subjected the full punishment of the law for his offence

  • This is a criminal offense. The lecturer wants to spread the disease. This is an abomination and he must be apprehended so as to serve as a warning to other evil doers. Now,the innocent girl has a possibility if contracting the disease. I pity her. This shows how vulnerable women are.
