Suspended UNICAL Dean drags VC, others to court
Suspended Dean of Law Faculty, University of Calabar, UNICAL, Prof Cyril Ndifon, has filed a lawsuit against the lnstitution’s Vice Chancellor, Prof. Florence Obi, for character defamation.
Ndifon had sued the vice chancellor of UNICAL and three others as defendants, expressing his displeasure over what he described as dragging his image to the mud even when he did nothing wrong.
In the suit before a National Industrial Court sitting in Calabar, other defendants in the matter include UNICAL Registrar and Prof. Dorathy Oluwagbemi-Jacob.
Ndifon, in the suit, accused the vice chancellor of colluding with the LAWSAN president (Unical chapter), Mr. Obi Benedict Otu, with one of the VC’s nieces, one Destiny Omokiti, to stage-manage a protest against him, so as to pull him down.
Reacting to the suit, the university’s Public Relations Officer, Mr. Effiong Eyo, said the institution only set up a panel to investigate allegations against the embattled Dean of Law Faculty.
