Sexual Harassment Is A Corrupt Act, Attracts 7 Years Prison Term – ICPC Warns

The Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) asserts that sexual harassment constitutes a corrupt practice, carrying the potential consequence of a seven-year prison sentence.

This cautionary statement was delivered by Mr. Clifford Oparaodu, the Commission’s Secretary, during a One Day Sensitization Workshop on Sexual Harassment in Tertiary Institutions held in Abuja.

Oparaodu emphasized that the ICPC categorizes sexual harassment as a form of corruption, underscoring the importance for victims to be well-informed about their rights and the avenues available to seek justice.

He expressed concern that sexual enjoyment had become “illegal tender” in many institutions.

“Sexual harassment is a form of corruption.

“It is a deviation from the norm for an official to use his/her office or position to demand, receive, obtain, or attempt to obtain any form of sexual gratification for him to perform his duties.

“Ideally, official duties ought to be carried out with integrity, good conscience, and diligence without the expectation of any unlawful benefit,” he said.
