OAU probes sex-for-marks audio

The Obafemi Awolowo University Ile-Ife, has commenced probe of the sex-for-marks audio that went viral on social media recently, reports ITRealms.

The Vice-Chancellor, OAU, Professor Eyitope Ogunbodede in a press statement made available to ITRealms said their attention has been drawn to an audio recording, now trending on the social media, of a telephone conversation ostensibly between one Professor Akindele and a female student of the University.

The recording, he said, suggested that the lecturer was demanding sex in return for grade which clearly amounts to sexually harassing the lady.

“Since the matter came to our notice, the University has begun the process of identifying the characters involves in this apparent breach of its regulations, the Code of Conduct for the University Community and the Anti-sexual Harassment policy, in full compliance with all applicable laws, rules, regulations and procedures of the University,” he said.

In addition, he said, the University has set up a high-powered committee to investigate the allegation and submit its report within one week and anyone found culpable will be dealt with decisively.

“I wish to assure the general public that Obafemi Awolowo University has zero tolerance for sexual harassment.  The University considers sexual harassment as a serious offence contrary to its Code of Conduct for the University Community and against the Anti-sexual Harassment Policy of the University.  It is totally and morally reprehensible, and the University will never condone such act by any staff or student,” the VC said.

Insisting that, “no one found culpable of this serious misconduct of sexual harassment will go unpunished.”
