Covenant University Reacts To Allegations Of Staff Coercing Female Students Into Having Sex With Them

The management of Covenant University has broken its silence after some students exposed series of rape allegations against lecturers of the school.

The university said it has launched an investigation into the matter.

On Monday, a circulating chat shows students narrating how some staff of the school coerce female students into having sex.

The allegations targeted different staff members; from hall monitors to the medical center to security officials, even the chaplaincy. One of the viral chats read:

“The staff in Covenant University are raping the students. They’ll set stupid rules and, if the students should break them, they sleep with them in exchange for their studentship.”

The anonymous individual said a girl was in coma after “an abortion for the head of the student disciplinary council”.

“He got her pregnant and still expelled her. So many students there are being abused”,

the chat added.
