The David Oyedepo founded Covenant University is on front papers for the wrong reason.
News Mail Nigeria reports that Dr. Stephen Ukenna, a Lecturer of the Department of Business management at the Covenant University Ota, Ogun State, has been arrested for rape.
Police said the Lecturer, Dr. Ukenna was arrested on March 11 “for forcefully having unlawful carnal knowledge of a 17-year-old student of the school.
The 41-year-old lecturer was arrested after a complaint was lodged at Ota Area Command by the parents of the victim.
The parents had informed the police that their daughter talked to them on phone from the school, narrating to them that she was invited by the lecturer to his office on the said date under the pretence that he wanted to plan a surprise birthday party for her close friend.
However, “on getting to his office, the lecturer locked the office door and forcefully had s*x with her on the table in his office,” the Ogun police spokesperson, Abimbola Oyeyemi, said on Tuesday.
Dr. Stephen Ukenna admitted he raped the 17 years old victim but didn’t give any reason for doing so.
