Ex-Rector, Magdalene D. Ikpa sentenced to jail in Benue State

A Chief Magistrate’s Court sitting in Makurdi, Benue State, northcentral Nigeria, has sentenced the former Rector of College of Advanced Professional Studies, Mrs Magdalene Damkor Ikpa to a three months imprisonment without an option of fine for slapping Mr Benjamin Awua, a senior lecturer of the same institution in 2009.
Delivering judgment on the matter, the Chief Magistrate, Mr Austine Ityonyiman stated that the act of slapping Mr Awua was an act of criminal force against him and was intentionally done to annoy him.

The Chief Magistrate said the convict who is a senior civil servant did not show any sign of remorse while the trial was on, adding that being a top civil servant was not a license to humiliate subordinate staff.
He said it was necessary for those holding key positions to exercise restraint, pointing out that what the former rector did to the senior lecturer who is an adult should be condemned.

Ityonyiman noted that there is need to deter those who may choose to humiliate others and called for severe checks on those who violate other people’s dignity.
