OAU sacks professor who demanded sex from student

Following controversy generated in the case of a professor at the Obafemi Awolowo University who demanded sex from a female student, the University Council today announced that action has been taken against the erring staff.

OAU Vice-Chancellor, Prof Eyitope Ogunbodede made it known to newsmen today after a council meeting that the University has dismissed Prof Richard Ogundele on the basis of an inappropriate relationship with a student, Miss Monica Osagie.

Recall that in April 2018, an audio tape that captured Prof Ogundele making the said demands was shared on the internet. In the tape, the professor was heard making a bargain with the student to upgrade her 33 percent mark in exchange for a sexual favour.

According the university’s VC, Prof Ogundele admitted to making such demands and was declared as being “liable for all the allegations of misconduct levelled against him.”

We have to do the nitty-gritty of budget consideration”. Doguwa, however, admitted that the president is at liberty to raise these concerns.

But see how Nigerians reacted:
