The management of Federal College of Education, FCE (Technical), Akoka, Lagos, has broken his silence over alleged Installation of CCTV cameras in female hostels.
DAILY GIST last week had reported that some female students accused the management and Lecturers of watching thier nudes and nakedness through the CCTV cameras installation in thier hostels.
Some of the students alleged that the CCTV camera was installed almost everywhere in the female hostel thereby denying them of personal privacy.
Backing the allegation with an evidence, the students revealed that some Lecturers had said it to their faces in class before.
The Provost of the institution, Wahab Azeez however while addressing Journalists denied the allegation
“It is true that some students demonstrated on Friday, March 5, 2021, basically to protest against the ejection of illegal female occupants and not because of what was reported”, NAN quoted him as saying.
The Provost noted that the installation of cameras for security purpose was ongoing in public places of the College and not in female hostels.
Azeez disclosed that the school processed and obtained TETFund sponsorship to install CCTV Cameras on the perimeter fence and buildings including male and female hostels.
“The CCTV Cameras is not in the rooms, bathrooms or toilet areas. The installation is yet to be completed and not activated. No student privacy can be breached, it’s an installation done purely for security reasons.”
The Provost also denied that 7,000 persons are cramped in the College accommodation that has 3,646 capacity.
The students, he insisted, are comfortably accommodated, adding that the rules guiding the hostels do not permit illegal occupants or squatters.
