UNICAL sex scandal: Why we arrested Prof Ndifon, by DSS
The Department of State Services (DSS) says the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) sought its collaboration to arrest the erstwhile Dean of the Faculty of Law, Professor Cyril Ndifon, involved in the University of Calabar (UNICAL) sex scandal.
The Director of Public Relations and Strategic Communications at DSS National Headquarters, Peter Afunanya, made this known in a statement on Thursday, October 5.
According to him, the commission had disclosed the refusal of Ndifon to honour its several invitations thus his eventual arrest in Calabar, Cross River State by its operatives on October 4, based on a Court Order.He said: “However, the Service, following the Commission’s request and in the spirit of interagency cooperation, supported it for a successful operation. This is to guide public understanding of the latest developments on the matter.”This reaction follows reports that Prof Ndifon had been abducted by gun-wielding men at his residence in the Akpabuyo local government area of Cross River state.
