UNIPORT reacts to video of lecturer s@xually harassing a students says video was released by neighbouring Rivers State University TV

The management of University of Port Harcourt has dismissed a viral video of an alleged lecturer of the institution, s@xually harassing a student.

Reacting to claim of the incident occurring at one of the offices in its Microbiology department, the Public Relations Officer of the University of Port-Harcourt (UNIPORT), Dr Sam Kpenu stated that it is purely a case of misrepresentation as its faculty of Microbiology, Department of Microbiology is upstairs.

He further revealed that it is the Rivers State University TV that released the video as such incident did not happen at the University of Port-Harcourt.

The statement read;

“If you look at the video, the video was released by the Rivers State University TV – RSUTV Video. If you look at the video you will see the inscription RSUTV. So it has nothing to do with the University of Port-Harcourt.

“It is purely misrepresentation and then our faculty of Microbiology, Department of Microbiology is upstairs but if you look at the video you can see outside with grasses. So our microbiology is upstairs, it is in three three-story building upstairs, so we don’t have such a thing in our university.

“That’s why we are not in a hurry to respond to the video. It is the Rivers State University TV that released that, so that thing did not happen at the University of Port-Harcourt. The video is fake and was released by the Rivers State University TV. We never recorded such an incident in our university.”
