BREAKING: ‘I'm Guilty,’ Says OAU Sex-For-Marks Lecturer
Prof. Richard Iyiola Akindele, popularly referred to "sex-for-marks" lecturer appears to have had an epiphany or come to terms with his conscience.
The former lecturer in the Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile Ife, which hitherto had denied the sex-for-marks allegation by one of his students, Monica Osagie, on Monday, changed his plea from ‘not guilty’ to ‘guilty.’
The prosecutor, Shogunle Adenekan, said all parties in the matter had reached an agreement and pleaded for a suspended sentence for the accused.
The matter was stood down for one hour.
The Federal High court sitting in Osogbo had on Tuesday declined the bail application of the lecturer.
Akindele was earlier arraigned by Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) for allegedly demanding sex in exchange for marks from Monica Osagie, a postgraduate student of the institution.
The presiding Judge, Justice Maureen Onyetenu at the last proceedings adjourned for definite trial and hearing application for bail but asked that Professor Akindele be remanded in prison.
