The Covenant University has debunked allegations that female students of the school are being sexually harassed and raped by workers of the intuition.
PUNCH Metro gathered that people had been accusing some workers of sexually harassing and raping female undergraduates of the institution.
Lamenting over the incident on social media, a man, while using his Instagram handle, @_Otitoo, called for urgent intervention to prevent a situation that would lead to the death of a student.
The post read, “CU girls are being raped and nothing is being done about it. Do something now. We don’t want to see your candles after we lose another girl.”
The screenshot of another message that was also shared on Twitter alleged that workers of the school were raping students who broke rules of the institution, adding that a student who got pregnant for a worker got expelled.
The message read, “The staff in Covenant University are raping the students. They’ll set stupid rules and if the students should break them, they’ll sleep with them in exchange for their studentship.
“A girl is in a coma now. She did an abortion for the head of the students’ disciplinary council. He got her pregnant and still expelled her.
“So many students there are being abused. It’s a Christian University for crying out loud. Covenant University has hidden so many deaths. They’ve expelled so many students for trying to speak up for their rights.”
Contacted, the Media Office of the institution, who gave her name only as Chichi, described the social media posts as false and the work of a mischievous person.
“It’s not true. It is a very false tweet or whatever it was. The person behind it must be mischievous.”
She added that the tweet was a surprise to her because no student had come forward to complain about anything related to the allegations in the tweet.
