A lecturer at the Captain Elechi Amadi Polytechnic, Port Harcourt, Rivers State who recently exchanged words with his female student over marriage advances has been suspended by the institution for alleged sexual harassment.

The lecturer, Tamunotonye Solomon was suspended for three months to allow for a comprehensive investigation of the issue between him and the student, Blessing Audu.

It would be recalled that the lecturer, Solomon and the 200-level female student, Blessing Audu had openly traded words in the media over the issues between the two of them.

According to Blessing, Mr. Solomon accused her of stealing his N250,000, after she refused his marriage proposal. However, the lecturer debunked the claim as an act of blackmail insisting that he arrested her because she stole his money and some office property.
