Sex-for-marks scandal: OAU VC blows hot, vows to deal with those found culpable

The Vice Chancellor of Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU), Ile-Ife, Eyitope Ogunbodede, has broken his silence over a leaked audio suggesting that one Richard Akindele, a Professor in the Department of Accounting, in the institution was demanding sex from a female student to help her pass her examination.

The don, whose name was mentioned in the audio by the victim, is yet to publicly speak on the scandal.

However, in a statement he personally signed on Wednesday, the Vice Chancellor of the institution, said the university has begun the process of identifying the person involved. He said the act was a breach of regulations of the university’s code of conduct and anti-sexual harassment policy.

“In full compliance to all applicable laws, the university has set up a high powered committee to investigate the allegation and submit its report within one week. Anyone found culpable will be dealt with decisively.

“The university considers sexual harassment as an offence punishable contrary to the code of conduct and anti-sexual harassment policy. The university will never condone such act by any staff or students,” the professor said.
