Sex-For-Marks: Court Denies OAU Lecturer Bail
And his troubles continue! Former Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU) lecturer, Richard Akindele, will remain in prison, at least for now.
A Federal High Court in Osogbo on Tuesday refused to grant bail to the man standing trial for demanding sex for marks from a student, Monica Osagie.
Justice Maureen Onyetenu in her ruling ordered Akindele to be remanded in Ilesa prison custody until Dec. 17.
Onyetenu ordered the prosecution counsel from the ICPC to produce video evidence of the lecturer and his Student having fun.
Earlier, ICPC Senior Legal Officer, Mr Kehinde Adetoye had prayed the court to deny the defendant bail on grounds that he will not appear for his trial when released.
Adetoye argued that the defendant had refused to appear in their office in Abuja after a written agreement to honour any invitation extended to him particularly on his return from abroad after a medical trip.
Defence Counsel, Mr Francis Omotosho, prayed the court to grant his client bail pending the final determination of the case but his pleas were ignored.
The lecturer was first arraigned before Justice Maureen Onyetenu on Nov. 19 by the ICPC on four counts of alteration of age and demanding sex to pass his student.
