The University of Lagos has emphasised the need for managements of universities across the country to intensify efforts in ensuring effective measures to tackle sexual harassments.

The Vice Chancellor of the institution, Prof. Oluwatoyin Ogundipe, said this in an interview with the Nigeria News Agency of Nigeria in Lagos.

According to him, the issue of ‘sex for marks’ in the country’s university system remains a hydra-headed monster that must be tackled without further delay.

Recall that some foremost universities in the country had been in the news in the recent past, over cases of sexual harassment by lecturers.

Some of the lecturers involved had, however, been found guilty based on established evidence provided by their victims before probe panels, which eventually led to their outright dismissal.

He noted, however, that the students on their part must tread with caution.
