Sex-for-Marks Scandal: OAU Professor reportedly suspended Indefinitely



Following the sex for marks scandal involving Professor Richard Akindele, a lecturer of Obafemi Awolowo University, whose telephone conversation in which he demanded sex from a female student was recorded and released on social media, an investigative panel set up by the management has indicted him and recommended him for immediate suspension.

A member of the committee who pleaded anonymity confided this to Punch‘s correspondent in Osogbo on Wednesday.

He said:

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.

The committee member said the lady was an MBA regular student and added that the final report would be submitted after the lady has appeared before the panel.

    Erm. Has oga been suspended with or without pay? The people on the panel, are they not his fellow lecturers? Are they not birds of a feather? #sexformarks has become so endemic that a root and branch cleansing is what is required in every institution in our obodo Nigeria.

    The case has just died a natural death, the lady will never show up. Having pacified the aggrieved Nigerians by suspending him, they will eventually quietly sneak him back into the system. ?

      She might never show up because these lecturers are united. She will pass Richard’s course and fail other lecturers course. The university authorities in trying to protect their own, will ask if other lecturers are also trying to get into her pants?
      You need God’s grace and wisdom to go through a Nigerian university.
