Following Oprah Winfrey‘s explosive speech at the Golden Globe Awards last night, a Facebook User, Funke Dezarn has decided to call out a former lecturer of the Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU), Ile-Ife, Francis Fakoya on charges of sexual harrassment.
She claimed that Fakoya was in the habit of failing female students unless they slept with him. She wrote:
Oprah’s speech on Golden Globe tonight inspired me to post this.
“Dr.Med.Dr” Francis Andy Fakoya of Anatomy Department OAU Ife-Ife,Nigeria , you destroyed many young lives through your sexual harassments. As that was not enough, you used your power as a teacher to Medical Students, to fail any student that refused you. Some of the student victims repeated the class, some like me were lucky to have just a resit, while some were thrown out of Medical school. I chose to say NO to you and you failed me in Anatomy 2 times (Part 2 and Part 3), which are the only failures I have on my transcript!!! I remember your words to me both times, a day before both exams, “Agree to sleep with me or you fail and resit the exam”.
Wherever you are tonight, for all the lives you affected negatively, TIME’S UP!!!
