Ex-OAU lecturer pleads guilty on sex-for-mark allegation

Prof. Richard Akindele

The former lecturer at the Department of Accounting, Obafemi Awolowo University, (OAU), Ile-Ife, Prof. Richard Iyiola Akindele on Monday pleaded guilty on the allegation levelled against him that he demanded for sex from his student, Miss Monica Osagie before she could pass his course.

Daily Trust reports that the Independent Corrupt Practices and other related offences Commission (ICPC) had arraigned the lecturer at the Federal High Court in Osogbo, Osun State after the sack of Akindele by the university.


Akindele, who was remanded in prison after his first arraignment in court, today changed his plea and admitted that he was guilty of the allegation as charged by the commission.


However, the prosecutor, Shogunle Adenekan, told the court that all parties in the matter have agreed and reach plea bargain and pleaded for a suspended sentence for the accused.

At the time of filing this report, the court was on recess and would re-convene later in the day to rule on the matter.
