ICPC plays nude videos of female student in evidence against suspended UNICAL professor

The Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) yesterday played some nude videos of a female Diploma student of the University of Calabar (UNICAL) in the open court in evidence against Prof. Cyril Ndifon, the institution’s suspended Dean of the Faculty of Law.

The development occurred when ICPC’s lawyer Osuobeni Akponimisingha led Bwaigu Fungo, the fourth prosecution witness (PW4), in evidence in the ongoing trial of Ndifon and his co-defendant, Sunny Anyanwu, before Justice James Omotosho of a Federal High Court in Abuja.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Ndifon was, on January 25, re-arraigned alongside Anyanwu as the first and second defendants on an amended four-count charge bordering on alleged sexual harassment and attempt to perverse the cause of justice.

Anyanwu, who is one of the lawyers in the defence, was joined in the amended charge filed on January 22 by the ICPC on allegation that he called one of the prosecution witnesses on her mobile telephone during the pendency of the charge against Ndifon and threatened her.

TKJ were involuntarily done.”

The PW4 added that from their forensic report, there was a part in the videos where TKJ said she was not comfortable sending the videos.

When Agi asked him if in one of the videos TKJ displayed a movement and was fidgeting to prove that the young lady did the videos without compulsion, Fungo simply said: “There was a movement.”

Also, Justice Omotosho had ordered the management of the Kuje Correctional Centre to allow Anyanwu access a medical facility of his choice with a view to treating himself.

The judge gave the order after Agi moved the application to the effect.

Justice Omotosho adjourned the matter till February 14 for continuation of trial.
