Another alleged OAU varsity randy lecturer placed on half salary

The management of the Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, Osun State, on Wednesday said it had commenced investigations into the allegations of request for sex levelled against a lecturer, Olabisi Olaleye, by a female student, Motunrayo Afolayan.

 Afolayan is a 400- level student in the Department of International Relations in the Faculty of Administration of the university where Olaleye teaches.

This fresh allegation is coming after a professor of Accounting, Richard Akindele, was accused and convicted for sexually harassing a female student, Monica Osagie, in 2018.

Akindele, who demanded sex from Miss Osagie to help improve her grades, has since been dismissed from the university.

Besides, the Independent Corrupt Practices and other related offences Commission took him to court where the randy lecturer was convicted and sentenced to two years’ imprisonment.

Speaking with The PUNCH on the fresh allegation on Wednesday, the Public Relations Officer of OAU, Abiodun Olarewaju, explained that when the incident was reported last year, the management immediately set up a panel to investigate it.

He, however, said even while the report of the panel was still being expected, the management had placed the lecturer on half salary.

On why the lecturer was placed on half salary when the panel had not concluded its investigations, Olarewaju said he could not provide any reason for that.

On how a prima facie case was established against him, the source said the evidence provided by the female student “was convincing.”

Though the source did not give details, another source said Afolayan presented a voice recording of where the lecturer was telling her that she would not pass his course until he slept with her, among other amorous comments.

Asked to confirm this, Olarewaju declined, saying details might be made public after the panel submitted its report. Punch
