OAU Sex-for-marks Scandal: Monica Osagie Lured Me With Nude Pictures – Prof. Akindele

Richard Akindele, the lecturer dismissed from the Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU) over sexual misconduct has claimed that Monica Osagie, the student involved in the controversy, seduced him with nude photos.

According to New Telegraph, Akindele said this in his reply to a query issued to him by the university.

“I know the lady in the audio recording to be an MBA regular student. I recall sometimes in November 2017 when she came to my office in company of some of her other MBA students/colleagues to inform me they failed a course that I took with another lecturer and pleaded that they should be upgraded,” he reportedly wrote.

“But I informed them that it was not possible because the result has been submitted and approved by the department. They left my office, but the lady returned alone to my office some few minutes after they had left begging me to
upgrade her to an ‘A’.

“She confessed that she did not fail the course, but that she had two other courses in the Department that she failed (not any of which that I am involved) but that she would need an “A” in my own course to boost her CGPA to get to an average of 50 to enable her obtain an MBA degree.

“I promptly turned down her request. She knelt down and held my legs pretending to be begging me, but was actually romancing me. I shouted at her to stop her madness, but she immediately stood up, raised her gown up to cover her face and I noticed she was not wearing any pant.

“I was afraid she could shout to attract other people and it may be difficult for me to defend myself of sexual assault. So I had to gently tell her to calm down and that we will do it five times on another day and place to which she agreed and gently left my office. I had to do that to save myself from any possible accusation of sexual assault which may be difficult to prove if she had shouted on that day. Of course, she attempted calling me at other times and seeing me after that day, but I kept avoiding her.

“Since then, she kept sending messages to me regularly describing how good she is in bed and how badly she needs to sleep
with me and get an “A” in the course, all of which I resisted.”

Akindele insisted that the day the leaked phone conversation was recorded, he deliberately played along.

He further claimed that two unknown vehicles with unidentified men and a lady
suspected to be Moncia, trailed him from OAU campus to Moro Campus, where the MBA programme was being run.

“On that fateful morning, I left my office on campus for Centre for Distance Learning (CDL), Moro to go for the MBA lecture. As I was driving out of the university, I noticed two vehicles following.

“I was somehow scared and wondered what the occupants in the cars were up to.

While still wondering, my phone rang and it was the lady in question calling, but I did not pick. When the phone rang the third
time, I picked and sensing danger with cars behind me, I decided to play along with her request, and that was what led me to demand five times of sex and for her to come to my office.

“I have evidence and proof that she naked herself and harassed me sexually and I have a naked picture she sent to my WhatsApp contact, pressing that she wanted to have sexual intercourse with me. I have known this lady to be a bad behaved lady and as if she is a psychotic person,” he added.

OAU had set up a panel to investigate the allegations levelled against Akindele, who
went into hiding after the scandal broke.

He was eventually sacked on June 20.
