OAU fires sex-for-marks lecturer

The Governing Council of Obafemi Awolowo University, Ike-Ife on Wednesday dismissed Prof. Richard Akindele, a lecturer indicted in the alleged sex-for-marks scandal by a female student, Monica Osagie.


OAU Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Eyitope Ogunbodede, told journalists in Ile-Ife that the council, after its findings, concluded that Professor Akindele had an inappropriate relationship with Osagie, a claim to which he admitted.

He said Council also discovered that the don had offered to change Osagie’s 33 per cent result to a pass mark, in consideration for sexual favours.
According to the vice chancellor, this was established in an audio recording (that went viral in April) which Akindele also admitted to.
