Sex-For-Marks Scandal: OAU Prof Recommended For Indefinite Suspension

Sex-For-Marks Scandal: OAU Prof Recommended For Indefinite Suspension

The woes of Prof Richard Akindele, a professor at the Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile Ife, may have been compounded after a committee instituted to investigate sexual harassment allegations against him recommended his indefinite suspension.

A female student last week posted online an audio recording in which the professor could be heard appearing to solicit for sex in exchange for marks.

The Punch quoted an unnamed source, who is a member of the committee, as saying that it had submitted its report.

The source reportedly disclosed that the committee in its interim report submitted to the institution recommended the indefinite suspension of Akindele after it established a prima facie case against him.

However, the source said that only the professor has appeared before the committee while the female student has refused to appear, adding that a final report will be submitted after the student’s appearance.

The Vice Chancellor of the Obafemi Awolowo University, Prof. Eyitope Ogunbodede, had on Sunday said that the institution may involve the police to help it verify the audio recording.

He also disclosed that the report from investigations into the case would be released on Wednesday (yesterday).
