This is on the heels of UNICAL’s suspension of the Dean, Faculty of Law, Prof. Cyril Ndifon, for alleged sexual harassment of female students in the faculty.
In reaction to this development, Barr Hassan urged the NBA to summon Prof Ndifon to the legal practitioner disciplinary committee for a stern investigation.
He stated that verifiable facts about victims on the ground are readily available for use against Prof Ndifon during prosecution.
Barr Hassan, also a member of the NBA security relations committee, said the matter should not be over-sensationalised as he urged the government to take a stand against such a heinous act.

Oluremi Tinubu urged to intervene in UNICAL’s sexual harassment case
Barr Hassan urged the body of women’s groups and First Lady Oluremi Tinubu to take up the matter to defend and protect women’s interests in society.
“I want the First Lady of the country and all other First Lady to take an interest in this matter because we have a lot of randy animals in human skin that are out there.”
He also lamented that women find it challenging to get good jobs and compete in the labour market due to sexual harassment.
Barr Hassan said:
“There should be a declarative statement condemning this act, and we want that to be done. The NBA President should stage a whole lot of campaigns on women’s protection, and this is criminal; it is unlawful, and appropriate sanctions be taken in this regard.
