OAU ‘sex-for-grades’ lecturer suspended


A lecturer in the Obafemi Awolowo University has been suspended for allegedly demanding sex in return for improved grades.

An investigation was launched by the University after a lecturer in a leaked audio recording seemed to offer a student who had failed a course an opportunity to pass if she agreed to have sex with him five times.

Abiodun Olarenwaju, OAU’s public relations officer, said it had been established that the voices in the recorded telephone conversation, that went viral, were that of Richard Akindele, a business professor, and a postgraduate student at the university.

The lecturer had been suspended pending a “final determination of disciplinary case against him”, Mr Olarenwaju said.

Prof Akindele has not commented publicly on the case.
