OAU Suspends Prof Richard Akindele Indefinitely Over Sex For Mark Scandal

The management of Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, has
suspended Prof. Richard Akindele, whose telephone conversation in
which he demanded for sex from a female student was recorded and
released on social media.
A member of the committee who pleaded anonymity confided this to

But he had yet to do that as of the time of filing this report.
The Vice Chancellor of the OAU, Prof. Eyitope Ogunbodede, had, on

be ready on Wednesday and that it would be released to the public.

The lady eventually rejected the condition given during the
