The Nigerian Senate has passed into law a bill against sexual harassment in various tertiary institutions in the country.

This bill spearheaded and sponsored by the red chamber Deputy Senate President Ovie Omo-Agege would prohibit the offense of sexual harassment of students in tertiary institutions.

According to the bill, any person who commits the offences of harassment of students shall in conviction be sentenced to imprisonment for 14 years or to a fine of N5million or both.
