The Governing Council of Lagos State University has reportedly concluded its investigations on the sexual harassment cases involving three lecturers.

The News Agency of Nigeria, NAN reported on Thursday, September 13, 2018, that the sacking of the lecturers would be announced after the Council's meeting in October.

According to NAN,  the three lecturers are from the Departments of Chemistry and Economics, while the third is from the LASU College of Medicine (LASUCOM) at Ikeja.

The anonymous source who spoke to NAN about the lecturers said two of them invited female students to their office to write an exam on a Saturday.

The source also told NAN that the  LASUCOM lecturer asked two female students to buy an injection, which he allegedly used to sedate them before he sexually took advantage of them.

Recall that in July 2018, Pulse reported the alleged sexual harassment case involving Dr Sunkanmi Odubunmi, who lectures in the Economics Department in LASU and a female student.
