One Richard Akindele a Professor at the Obafemi Awolowo University, who wanted to interchange sex for mark with a female student, has been suspended indefinitely by the university authority.
The professor was asked to go and rest following the recommendation of the disciplinary committee set up by the university to probe the matter and to authenticate the veracity of the telephone conversation, where the lecturer demanded to have sex with the student five times before he would upgrade her mark from 33 to a pass mark.
A member of the committee who chose to remain anonymous 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. I don’t want to tell you what he said on the telephone.”
The committee member said the lady was an MBA regular student and added that the final report would be submitted after the lady might have appeared before the panel.
