The Management of Alex Ekwueme Federal University Ndufu-Alike in Ikwo Local Government Area of Ebonyi, has distanced herself from the alleged conduct of Dr Felix Anyaegbunam who has been dubbed ‘Professor of Rape’ after serial allegations of sexual molestation of teenagers in his custody.

The university has also clarified Anyaegbunam’s position in the institution saying that he is not a professor but a senior lecturer.

NAN reports that the Police Command in Ebonyi had on Sunday arrested Anyaegbunam after he was alleged to have violated the daughter of his gateman.

It was alleged that he had been sexually violating the 13-year-old girl who hails from Ezza North Local Government Area of Ebonyi.

A statement issued by the university’s Public Relations Officer, Mr Ikechukwu Elom to reporters in Abakaliki on Tuesday, said the school “is a serious public institution guided by the core values of excellence, integrity and does not condone any form of criminality.

“The attention of the Management of Alex Ekwueme Federal University Ndufu-Alike, Ebonyi has been drawn to the news making the rounds in both the traditional and new media about a lecturer in the university alleged to have sexually molested a minor and house-help,” he said of the rape allegations against the lecturer.

“We wish to state as follows that the school management is yet to receive official report or complaint on the alleged crime; will act accordingly as soon as such report is made.

“Contrary to media report, Anyaegbunam is not a Professor of Geophysics in our university, but a senior lecturer in the Department of Physics,” the Alex Ekwueme University spokesman said in response to the rape allegations.

It would be recalled that the Police spokesperson in the state, DSP Loveth Odah had said that the suspect was in their custody.

Odah had further deposed that the Commissioner of Police, Mr Aliyu Garba has ordered discreet investigation into the matter as the medical screening of the victim is being awaited,” she said. (NAN)
