The arrest was at the instance of the Independent Corrupt Practices Commission (ICPC) following his alleged refusal to turn himself in for questioning despite several invitations.
It was gathered that the ICPC had sought the collaboration of the DSS on the UNICAL S*x Scandal matter which involved the suspended Dean of the Faculty of Law of the Institution, Professor Cyril Ndifon.
The Spokesman for the DSS, Dr. Peter Afunanya, in a statement on Thursday, confirmed that Ndifon was eventually arrested in Calabar, Cross River State by its operatives on Wednesday based on a Court Order.
“However, the Service, following the Commission’s request and in the spirit of interagency cooperation, supported it for a successful operation,” Afunanya explained.
“This is to guide public understanding of the latest developments on the matter,” the statement added.
It also gathered that the arrest was following outcry by female Unical law students over Ndifon’s s*x exploits against them, the University suspended him and raised a panel to probe the allegations against him.
The panel, which submitted its report early this week, recommended that Ndifon be sanctioned for various offences, including extortion of funds.
