A Federal High Court in Abuja, on Monday, ordered the remand of Prof. Cyril Ndifon, suspended Dean of Faculty of Law, University of Calabar (UNICAL), who was charged with alleged sexual harassment.

Ndifon, who is being prosecuted by the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) before Justice James Omotosho, however, pleaded not guilty to the four-count charge.

The ICPC, through its counsel, Ebenezer Shogunle, filed the charge marked: FHC/ABJ/CR/511/23 on October 30, 2023, against Ndifon.

Ndifon’s counsel, Okon Efut (SAN), took his bail application dated January 2 and filed January 3.

Efut prayed the court to admit his client to bail, particularly on health grounds.

Speaking from the dock, Ndifon said: “My lord, I was supposed to have an eye surgery on glaucoma.”

ICPC lawyer, Osuobeni Akponimisingha, opposed the application for bail.

Justice Omotosho, who ordered Ndifon to be remanded in Kuje prison, adjourned the matter until January 10 for hearing of the bail application.
