A lecturer at Ekiti State University, Ado -Ekiti has been caught pants down while allegedly attempting to have carnal knowledge of one his students.

In a 29-second video clip which has gone viral on social media, the lecturer who is in the Accounting Department, was seen nude.

Some female students of the varsity who were believed to have laid siege to the residence of the female student were seen dragging the embattled lecturer out of a room.

Investigations revealed that the lady’s boy friend and his friends were said to have informed the lady to play along with the lecturer when he made overtures to her in exchange for marks.

Judging by the the claim of a voice in the video, the scene of the incident was the state capital, Ado Ekiti.

According to the video, an audible voice chatted: “This is a lecturer of EKSU. He wants to have S*x with a student”. The voice said a lot of unprintable things laying bare the escapades of the randy lecturer.

While making mockery and torturing the lecturer, one of the boys was seen pressing a powered electronic device to on his body .

The lecturer was screaming and begging the students for mercy.

He was not spared as he was beaten black and blue by the students when he was trying to resist being pulled out from the room naked.

Meanwhile, the female student was the one who uploaded the video clip on her Whatsap, captioning it :“I am not sending oh, he wants to f**k fresh pu**y.

Some students of the institution who spoke with Saturday Vanguard confirmed the identity of the lecturer in the video as a popular person, though expressed their reservations about act.

They, however, revealed that the lecturer was not alone in the game of intimidating female students to have rump with them.

They said most lecturers in the institution were in the habit of abusing and taking undue advantage of ladies hence the need for investigation into the matter and sanction on the lecturer.

They said there are several cases of such in the school but most victims were not bold enough to expose them.

Efforts to contact the lecturer was unsuccessful as his line was switched off.

However, EKSU authorities and police had said they were not aware of the incident.

Horror! Rapist cuts off teacher’s wrist

Rapist cuts off teacher’s wrist

by FAITH YAHAYA

A teacher escapes from a suspected rapist, but loses her wrist to her attacker’s machete cuts, reports FAITH YAHAYA

There is enough violence in the land to tell everyone that all is not well. Consider herdsmen attacks, kidnapping, armed robbery, burglary, car snatching, ‘one chance’ robbers, phone snatching and others.

Like most states where these cases of crime abound, the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) is not left out. The increasing rate of crime has made some residents of Abuja to live in constant fear while some are compelled to adhere to security tips provided by the police and other security agencies.

Following the spate of insecurity in the country, people these days approach worship centres, recreational parks, motor parks, airports, clubs, eateries and public places with caution. For those who board vehicles and motorbikes, they observe the drivers and other occupants of the vehicle before boarding in order not to become victims. For Margaret Nyitse, a resident of Pegi community in Kuje Area Council of Abuja, she was not in the places prone to attacks when she was attacked. Margaret who studied Primary Education at College of Education Katsina-Ala in Benue State is a nursery school teacher and her job is to impart knowledge into the lives of young kids and that she has done for years with passion. Following the economic situation in the country, Margaret like most struggling youths who try to make ends meet decided to go into home tutoring to add to her little income. According to her, she did the job with joy because of the smiles she sees on the faces of the children she teaches and their parents. The smile she brought to the faces of others could not be found on her face following an attack on her by a cattle herder.

After what she described as a fulfilled day, she was walking back home around 6:30pm on the 18th of March 2018 when she was attacked. Her wrist was cut off after attempts to rape her failed. Narrating how she was attacked, she said: “I am a teacher and I also do home lesson. I teach nursery classes English, Mathematics and other subjects. On the 18th of March this year, I was coming back from where I do home lesson for children. I met a Fulani guy on the way when I took a short cut leading to my house. I kept going and he followed me. The short cut is a place that car used to pass but the owner of the land came and started raising his building. So the only way to pass that side is by foot. As I was going, he was coming behind me my back. At the middle of the short cut, he passed me and started going at my front and I was coming at his back. At a point, he stopped by one tree and was playing with the leaves and acted as if he wanted to cut the leaves. I passed him while he was doing that and then something came to my mind that I should run but then again, I said to myself, why would I see somebody and start running?

“So I decided to hasten my steps. Later, I turned back to observe what was going on behind me and I noticed his hands were behind him as if he had something to hide. It was at this point it occurred to me that he might hurt me. I then turned to run but he was already close to me. The next thing I felt was cutlass on my shoulder. My shoulder bone broke and then I felt another one on my elbow. As my shoulder bone broke, my hand went down and the bag I was carrying fell off. While he was trying to pick my bag from the floor, I gathered all the strength I had left in me and ran out of the foot path and it was while I was running I discovered that some parts

of my hand were off.

“When I noticed I was safe, I saw people passing and I begged them to carry me to the hospital because a Navy barracks clinic was close to us. They took me there and I was told they could not treat me because I was bleeding seriously but they managed to tie the hand and they carried me in their ambulance to Gwagwalada Specialist and that was where I was treated.”

Margaret revealed to The Nation that her family spent close to a million naira to fix her hand.

“On the 21st of March, they did surgical operation on my hand and I am presently carrying two irons on my hand. One of the irons is holding my shoulder bone while the other one is holding my elbow. They gave me eleven pints of blood and I stayed in the hospital for about two weeks. When we calculated what we spent aside the things we were asked to buy without receipt outside the hospital, we arrived at over N800,000.”

On how she was able to recognize her attacker, she said: “It was around 6:30pm, the whole place was not dark and I am very good with faces.

Speaking on how he was arrested, the FCT Commissioner of Police, CP Bala Ciroma said: “Following an ongoing investigation, Operatives of the Federal Special Anti-Robbery Squad (FSARS) attached to the Command arrested one Ahmadu Adamu who attacked one Margaret Nyitse on 18th March, 2018 at about 1830hrs in Pegi Community, Kuje Area Council and cut off her left wrist with a cutlass.

“The suspect who has been on the run was arrested in Pegi on 14th December, 2018 at about 2000hrs. He has made useful statement on how the crime was committed. Effort is being intensified to recover the victim’s handbag which was robbed by the suspect and the weapon used in committing the crime.”

When the Nation approached Adamu to know why he attacked Margaret, he explained in Hausa language that he only wanted to have sex with her. “I am cattle rearer at Pegi. I used the cutlass to cut her because I thought she would fall which would have enabled me have sex with her but when I cut her, the handbag she was carrying fell off her hand. It was while I was trying to check the content of her bag that she ran away. I took the bag and ran away too but I found nothing in the bag.”

Margaret who is currently living without her wrist said the attack has affected her life negatively. She said she is forced to live and learn to work with only one wrist and hopefully look for another job since it seems difficult to return to the classroom with one wrist.

On how she has been coping since the incident, she said: “Life has not been easy at all because I have not gone back to work since the incident. It has not been easy. I won’t lie to you, I passed through hell.”

Office romance

Office romance

Professor Richard Akindele

By Ray Ekpu

Former lecturer of the Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU), Ile-Ife, Prof. Richard Akindele allegedly demanding sex from one of his students, Ms Monica Osagie

Richard Akindele was a Professor of Management Accounting at the Obafemi Awolowo University at Ile-Ife, until his indiscretion in matters of sex separated him from his high-profile job. Now that indiscretion has also separated him from his freedom, his family and his friends. He has been sentenced to six years in prison for sexually harassing his student, Monica Osagie.
The story was that Professor Akindele had demanded sex from his student so that he would upgrade her score. Somehow their lured conversation got full airing on the internet and internet addicts were fulsomely entertained. The girl, Monica, asked the Professor whether he liked a “blow job” or “sixty-nine”, some technical terms in the sex business which this column has no intention of explaining since this column is not an encyclopedia of sexual jargon.

The university authorities instituted an inquiry into the affair and interviewed all the parties concerned. At the end of the inquiry, the professor was found wanting. He was indicted of inappropriate relationship with his student and shown the exit door from the institution.

The Professor may have thought that the book had been closed on the matter and that he would find a way of opening a new chapter in his life. The first chapter was not fully closed because the Independent Corrupt Practices Commission (ICPC) was keeping an eagle eye on the matter. Between June and now the ICPC dragged the randy professor before a High Court in Osun State. Last week, Justice Maureen Onyetenu sentenced him to six years in jail. His lawyer’s plea for bargain was rebuffed by the judge. He got 24 months for asking for sexual benefits from his student, Monica; 24 months for soliciting from Monica sexual benefit in order to pass her; 12 months for deleting parts of the WhatsApp conversations between them to conceal evidence and 12 months for falsification of age. The six years will run concurrently. A brilliant career has been brought to a ruinous end through his passion for that little matter of the flesh. It does appear that she was fully aware, whether expressed overtly or covertly, of the hunger in him for her. The staggering challenge of their proximity must have elicited a reckless passion in this Professor who was also a Pastor. He must have been eyeing her with a look of scorching intent while shafts of electricity coursed through his veins.

While all this was going on, it was fun and he had no idea that the road to jail was paved with pretty preys in short skirts.Now that door is wide open and Akindele has made a short trip from professor to prisoner. This, I believe, is the first high profile sexual harassment case in our universities that has been speedily concluded and the sexual predator jailed.

In everyone of our universities, there are stories and stories of sexual harassment. It is also beginning to rear its horrid head in secondary and primary schools. This jailing of Professor Akindele will serve as a strong signal to all those who practise this illicit craft.Make no mistake about it, there is office romance in many settings, particularly where the bosses and their subordinates work in close proximity with each other. Such settings include pilots and air hostesses, doctors and nurses, coaches and players as well as church leaders and members of their congregation. The closeness in the performance of their duties elicits a closer-than-normal relationship.

Where any of the parties is unable or unwilling to draw the line between what is appropriate and what is not in their official relationship, then a problem may arise. Office romance is not objectionable if it is done between consenting adults. Such relationships have in many cases blossomed into marriage and the parties have in many cases also lived happily thereafter. Of course, if the romance is between two consenting adults in the work place it does not mean that it may not have consequences in terms of work ethics. If a man, possibly a boss, is in a romantic relationship with a girl, his subordinate, there is high likelihood of the girl being given preferential treatment to the envy of the other staff. The office rumour mill will grind very fast and poison the work atmosphere and even if the subordinate deserves what she gets in the work place, it will be assumed that she got it because of her relationship with the boss. If on the other hand, the girl rebuffs the overtures of the boss she is, more likely than not, to face hostility and unmerited punishment for scorning the boss’ overtures. In every situation, office romance comes with a load of problems whether it is practised by two consenting adults or not.

However, the damage in the educational system that is brought about by office romance is deep. For every student who is favoured by a lecturer because the student offered the lecturer sex or money, the system suffers and the society too. This is obvious because you can find today many university graduates with well embroidered degrees who can hardly write a job application correctly. These belong to the category of students who bribed their lecturers with sex or money or perfumes or shoes or expensive birthday or new year gifts in return for high marks. Where such an exchange of favours occurs and there is no third party involved or none of the parties fails in the discharge of his own side of the bargain, then everyone is quiet and no one knows that anything untoward had taken place.

Many of our educational institutions are aware of the prevalence of sexual harassment in their institutions but are indifferent to their existence. Some of them engage in a cover-up because they think a disclosure of such misdemeanour will affect the reputation of the institution.

The Obafemi Awolowo University authority deserves full marks for tackling the Akindele matter frontally and fairly. The girl, Monica, was said to have earlier reported Professor Akindele to one of the lecturers in her department, but nothing was done to restrain the randy Professor. The story is that some of the lecturers who indulge in sexual harassment work in groups and watch each other’s back. When cases of harassment are reported by students, they accuse them of being the harassers. With that they feel free to execute a cover-up. Each institution must have a more stringent code of conduct for its staff and students so as to protect their standard, their reputation and the integrity of its lecturers and students.

The brazenness of the practice is noticeable in many institutions. Some of the lecturers, we learn, even ask the female students that they target to book and pay for hotel rooms for their illicit enterprise. These fellows seem to suffer from some kind of inferiority complex. They feel comfortable to oppress those who are under their care instead of seeking for sexual satisfaction from those who are not under their supervision. To secure the sexual favour of those who are outside their canopy, they know that they must spend their hard-earned money to garnish the relationship.What they prefer is awoof from those they are supposed to guide and mentor. That is brazenness. That is inferiority complex. That is abuse of office.

OAU Sex-for-Mark Professor bags 6 years jail

OAU Sex-for-Mark Prof bags 6 years jail

By Gbenga Olarinoye, Osogbo

Justice Maurine Onyetenu of the Federal High Court sitting in Osogbo, Monday sentenced former lecturer of Obafemi Awolowo University, OAU, Prof. Richard Iyiola Akindele, to six years imprisonment for demanding sex to pass his student, Monica Osagie.

Justice Onyetenu sentenced the convict to 24 months on count one, 24 months on count two, 1 year on count three and 1 year on count four.

The accused had pleaded not guilty to the charge of sexual harassment preferred against him by the Independent Corrupt Practices and other related offenses Commission, ICPC.

He had since then been remanded in prison custody following objection to his bail by the prosecution ICPC.

When the case came up on Monday, Akindele opted to change his earlier plea and admitted guilty of the offences as charged.

He was arraigned before Justice onyetenu on November 19 for alleged sexual harassment.

Meanwhile, efforts by the defence counsel to suspend the sentencing and negotiate for plea bargain failed, as Justice Onyetenu frowned at the rampant cases of students harassment by lecturers.

Justice Onyetenu said “the plea bargain is not absolute. The court still have discretion.

“This kind of issue is too rampant in our tertiary institutions. We send children to school, they come home telling us that lecturers want to sleep with them.

“We can not continue like this. Somebody has to be used as example. Even primary schools pupils are complaining. Telling me to suspend sentence does not arise. Plea bargain does not arise. Maybe the case will continue to occur and reoccur because someone has not been used as example.

“It is time for the court to start upholding the right of the children, especially female students. The case is endemic.

Counsel to the defendant, Mr. Francis Omotosho, informed the court that the defendant has lost his job and has learnt his lesson.

He told the court that the University has discovered the mistake in the marking of the examination paper of the victim and has concluded plans to compensate her.

The Counsel further told the court that plans are ongoing to make offices of the lecturers open by building the front side with glasses at OAU.

But, the Judge, who apparently not convinced with the prayer of the Counsel, said “do you think they do it in the office? They go to hotel.

Counsel to the ICPC, Mr. Shogunle Adenekan, urged the court to confiscate the mobile phone of the defendant and forfeit it to the federal government, saying that sensitive materials were discovered there during forensic.

He also urged the court to grant order, releasing the mobile phone of the victim, Monica.

After considering the plea bargaining entered and signed by the Counsels, the Judge said there is a need to deter other people because of the nature of the case.

In her judgement, Justice Onyetenu sentenced the convict to 24 months on count one, 24 months on count two, 1 year on count three and 1 year on count four.

She said the jail term should run concurrently. She also ordered that the Samsung X4 of the victim should be returned to her and the Samsung X8 of the convict be forfeited to the federal government.

Former OAU sex for marks professor remanded in prison

UPDATED: Ex-OAU lecturer, Akindele, in sex-for-marks scandal, remanded in prison

Bola Bamigbola, Osogbo

Prof. Richard Iyiola Akindele, the former lecturer with Obafemi Awolowo University, accused by her student, Monica Osagie, of demanding sex to pass her has been remanded in prison custody.

Akindele was arraigned on Monday by the Independent Corrupt Practices and other Related Offences Commission before Justice Maureen Onyetenu of a Federal High Court, Osogbo, on four counts bordering on alteration of age and demanding sex to pass his student.

A Federal High Court sitting in Osogbo remanded Akindele in prison custody.

Dressed in all-white attire, Akindele, pleaded not guilty to all the four counts pressed against him.

The charge reads: “That on 16th day of September, 2017 or thereabout, you corruptly asked for sexual benefits for yourself from one Monica Osagie for a favour that would be thereafter shown to her by upgrading her academic record from fail to pass, thereby committing an offence contrary to and punishable under Section 8 (1)a and 2 of the Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission Act 2000.

“That you solicited sexual benefits from the victim on 16th of September, 2017 or thereabout for a favour to be given to you, the act contrary to and punishable under Section 18 (b) of the ICPC Act.

“That you deliberately concealed evidence, with the intent to remove parts of the conversation between you and the victim, contrary to Section 15 (1) and (2) of the ICPC Act.

“That you falsified your age by saying, under interrogation, that you were born on April 19, 1961, while in your personal file retrieved from OAU, you claimed you were born on April 19, 1959, an act contrary to and punishable under Section 25 of ICPC Acts, 2000.”

Addressing the court, the senior legal officer, ICPC, Kehinde Adetoye, said the prosecution was ready for definite hearing of the matter.

Defense counsel, Francis Omotoso, who appeared with two other lawyers, however, observed that the name of the counsel that signed the charge sheet of the case was not marked.

He said three names were listed, but the one that signed the charge sheet among the three was not marked.

Responding to the observation, Adetoye explained that Ebenezer Adenekan, the lead counsel for the ICPC, signed for other counsel involved in the matter.

Asked by the court if ready for definite hearing of the matter, the defense counsel, after initially declaring readiness for hearing, pleaded for more time to study the charge sheet.

He said the prosecution only served him 30 minutes before the sitting commenced.

Reacting to the claim, prosecution counsel, Ayantoye, said that for weeks, he made efforts to reach the defendant and serve him, adding that Akindele could not be reached through his mobile line.

Although the defense counsel made oral application for bail for the defendant, Justice Onyetenu insisted on an affidavit.

She subsequently adjourned the matter to Tuesday, November 27, 2018 for definite hearing and remanded Akindele in prison custody.
