In a telephone conversation with an online medium, Osetobe, said she was never contacted by the school officials.

According to her, “The management didn’t contact me. If they did, i would have honour them”.

It will be recalled that Obafemi Awolowo University had on Thursday morning, released statement claiming, the female voice owner of the Sex-For-Mark conversation has been identified, as Monica Osetobe, who was contacted, but failed to show up.

In the interim report submitted to the Vice Chancellor, OAU;

Professor Eyitope Ogunbodede, Professor Richard I. Akindele, of the Department of Management and Accounting, is now established to be the lecturer in the controversial “marks for sex” audio recording. The female voice has also been identified as that of Miss Monica Osetobe OSAGIE, a Postgraduate Student on the Master of Business Administration Regular programme.

Although the Investigative Committee had invited both Professor Richard I. Akindele and Miss Osagie, only Professor Akindele had appeared before the Committee, while Miss Osagie is yet to appear or make any representation.

The report indicated that many other witnesses appeared before the Committee and gave useful evidence. The University is making efforts to ensure that Miss Osagie appears before the investigative committee so that it can hear her side of the case and promptly submit its final report.

The Committee observed that a prima facie case of inappropriate relationship with the female student had been established against Professor Richard I. Akindele. The Vice-Chancellor, having carefully and dispassionately considered the report, also came to the conclusion that a prima facie case of serious misconduct had been established.

Having regard to the gravity of the offence for which Professor Richard I. Akindele is found to be prima facie liable, the Vice-Chancellor, in line with the Code of Conduct for the University Community and acting under all the laws and regulations of the University enabling him in that regard, has directed that Professor Richard I. Akindele be suspended forthwith from the University, pending the final determination of the disciplinary case against him.

Under the provisions of the relevant Statute of the University, an academic staff can only be dismissed from service or have his or her appointment terminated only when the matter on which consideration is being given has been investigated by a Joint Council and Senate Committee, and the staff has appeared before the committee with his or her counsel, if so desired. This procedure is the minimum requirement of the law and regulations of the University.

It should therefore be noted that the suspension of Professor Richard Akindele is on the basis of the findings of the Investigative Committee that he is prima facie liable, and this decision will abide, pending the final determination of the case by the Council of the University.

We will like to reiterate that OAU will continue to do everything legally and morally acceptable in pursuance of its avowed commitment to zero tolerance for s*xual harassment, intimidation and, or coercion.

  1. Nice one! The foolish man is dealing with a post graduate student. She has less to loose because already has a degree to her name. The school should focus on the undergraduate section where most of them cannot step forward.

  2. It’s well with the Prof, even in the well! But I listen to that conversation on phone with the lady by the prof. The question now is that must he discuss such a thing on phone with her when he has an office where he can invite her? As a man of God that he used to known to be on campus, must he involved himself in such immoral act? Huu, prof will cap it up, is the work of the devil. A time will come when devil will come openly on those always mention devil’s name fr their evil doings. Prof, pls go and face ur punishment and take it in good faith. Even within u, u know that u have goofed.
