OAU Suspends Lecturer that Trades Sex for Grades.
A recorded audio conversation between a student at the Obafemi Awolowo University and an a then unknown lecturer caught the Professor asking the said female student for sex in order to pass his course.
The audio conversation went viral last week.
The lecturer was identified as Professor Richard Akindele, a OAU lecturer who has reportedly been suspended indefinitely by the institution.
Punch reports that Professor Akindele has appeared before the panel to state his own side but the female student who is a regular Masters student, failed to show up to testify before the panel as told by an inside source, a member of an investigative committee set up by the management of the school to look into the allegation.
“The committee recommended the indefinite suspension of the professor pending the time the final report will be ready. The committee established a prima facie case against the professor. But note that this is the interim report of the committee. The committee invited the professor and the female student. We identified the student and invited her, but she did not appear. Only the professor honoured our invitation. I don’t want to tell you what he said on the telephone.” the source revealed.
