The suspended Dean of the Faculty of Law, Professor Cyril Ndifon, who is presently on the run from operatives of the Independent Corrupt Practices Commission, ICPC has approached the Calabar High Court to seek an injunction barring the anti-graft Commission from inviting or arresting him over investigation into allegations of rape and abuse of office against Ndifon.

According to court processes obtained by CrossRiverWatch, Professor Ndifon applied for the enforcement of his fundamental human rights, in Suit no. FHC/CA/M19/2016, with the ICPC and the victim of the rape allegation as Respondents.

Among other applications, Professor Ndifon, the Applicant, wants the court to make:

“A declaration that the threat to arrest or detain the Applicant by the Respondents either by themselves or through their agents, assigns, privies etc is illegal, wrongful and unconstitutional as it violates the Applicant’s fundamental rights to dignity of human person and personal liberty guaranteed under sections 34 and 35(1) of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, 1999 and Article 6 of the African Charter on Human and Peoples Rights (Ratification and Enforcement) Act, Laws of the Federal Republic of Nigeria 2004.

“An order of perpetual injunction restraining the Respondents whether by themselves, servants agents, employees or privies from inviting, arresting, detaining and/or threatening to arrest or detain the Applicant on the facts and circumstances of this application.”

ICPC operatives have been on the trail of the suspended Professor after he was accused of raping a 20 year old, 400 level student of Law in his office.

Operatives of the Commission had told CrossRiverWatch that after receiving petitions from the family of the victim and the Nigerian Feminist Forum, NFF, the anti graft Commission has invited Ndifon repeatedly to come and state his own side of the story but he has refused to show up.

One commentOn UNICAL Randy Professor Asks Calabar High Court To Bar ICPC From Arresting Him

  • I applaud CrossRiverWatch for keeping the public abreast of the news regarding the case of the suspended randy Dean of Faculty of Law at UNICAL. Ndifon and his legal advisers do not seem to get the point.

    It is NO violation of a suspected criminal’s fundamental human rights when that suspect is asked to appear before the appropriate legal authority to defend him/herself.

    The only person whose fundamental human rights have been violated are the young ladies whom Ndifon has been accused of having carnal knowledge with. If proven guilty, Ndifon deserve to be castigated and locked up for the rest of his life.

    I pray that the Calabar High Court will rule on this case expeditiously so that Ndifon and his legal team will know that their delay tactics is uncalled-for and fruitless.
