Akindele, OAU ‘sex-for-marks’ lecturer, released from prison after 2-year term


Richard Akindele, sacked lecturer of Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU), Ile-Ife, has been released from prison after serving a two-year term. 

TheCable learnt that the lecturer was released on March 19 and now back home to his family.

In 2018, a federal high court in Osogbo, Osun state, sentenced Akindele to prison after he pleaded guilty to a four-count charge filed against him.

Akindele was arraigned by the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) for “attempting to have sex” with Monica Osagie, one of his students, in exchange for marks.

In an audio which went viral online, Akindele was heard demanding five rounds of sex from Osagie to award her a pass mark in a course she failed.

Maurine Onyetenu, the judge, held that it was necessary to punish the professor to serve as a deterrent to other lecturers.

Akindele, a clergyman at the Anglican Diocese of Ife, was a member of the church’s marriage committee before the scandal.

TheCable also learnt that his appeal against his conviction is scheduled for hearing at the court of appeal, Akure, on May 19.

In his new book, ‘Naked Abuse: Sex for Grades in African Universities’, Olusegun Adeniyi addressed the menace of sexual harassment in tertiary institutions across Africa. (The Cable)
