NBA Committee Recommends Disciplinary Action Against Prof. Ndifon

Date:

An ad-hoc committee set up by the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) to investigate the allegations of sexual assault and harassment against Prof. Cyril Ndifon, the suspended Dean of Faculty of Law, University of Calabar, has concluded its investigation.

The committee led by Mrs. Linda Rose Bala, the 1st Vice President of the NBA submitted its report to the NBA President during the meeting of the National Executive Committee of the Association, which held over the weekend at the NBA House in Abuja.

The committee, which met with and had engagements with Prof. Ndifon and some complainants in Calabar, recommended, among other things, that the NBA make a complaint of professional misconduct before the Legal Practitioners Disciplinary Committee (LPDC) against the suspended lecturer.

In his reaction, the NBA President thanked the committee for its efforts and pledged that the report of the committee shall be presented to the National Executive Council (NEC) of the NBA at its forthcoming meeting in December 2023 and that the recommendations made by the committee shall be immediately implemented upon approval of the NEC.
