The management of University of Calabar at Cross River State, said it was investigating allegations that some of its lecturers have been conducting examinations for students in hotels.
The school management issued the memo on August 10, to the university community, saying it was launching an investigation into allegations that its lecturers had resorted to conducting examinations at their homes and hotels.
Although the memo did not state why a lecturer would abandon the halls on campus and have student(s) sit for exams in hotel, it is believed that sexual and monetary gratification may be a prime motive here.
The memo read in part
“Management has information to the effect that lecturers have resorted to giving students scripts to write exams at homes, hotels and relaxation places,” said the memo signed by Michael Okom, a professor and the deputy vice-chancellor in-charge of administration, University of Calabar.
Mr Okom, in the memo, said the university was also investigating allegations of money-for-grade, otherwise called “sorting”, and sex-for-grade, sexual harassment, and extortion due to series of complaints from students against some lecturers.
