UNICAL Suspends Prof Ndifon Over Sexual Assault

The University of Calabar, UNICAL has suspended Professor Ndifon over sexual assault.

Cyril Ndifon, UNICAL’s first Professor of Law, was in August 2015 suspended by the Institution, after been accused of sexually assaulting a 20-year-old 400-level student in his office.

Ndifon sued the Institution and lost the case at the Calabar Division of the National Industrial Court on September 21, 2016.

Attempts by Ndifon to stop the ICPC from taking over the case also met a brick wall as Justice Inyang Ekwo dismissed the suit he (Ndifon) filed on March 02, 2017.

Surprisingly, he was reinstated to his position as Faculty Dean in December last year.


The Management of the University of Calabar has suspended the Dean, Faculty of Law, Prof. Cyril Ndifon for alleged violation of the extant laws and policies of the Institution.

The suspension came on the heels of the Dean’s response to a query earlier issued to him by the University Management.

According to the suspension letter signed by the Registrar, Prof. Ndifon has been relieved of his duties as Dean and placed on suspension while the matter is referred to a panel to investigate allegations leveled against him.

Prof. Cyril Ndifon is to handover all University properties in his possession including all official responsibilities to the Sub-Dean of the Faculty.

Prof. Ndifon is to stay away from the University premises except while responding to invitations from the panel investigating the matter.

The suspension takes effect from 17th August, 2023.
