Varsity dismisses lecturer over sexual related offence



OBAFEMI Awolowo University (OAU) Ile Ife has dismissed another lecturer over the offenses of sexual intimidation, harassment and coercion of a female student.

   The dismissed lecturer is Dr Adebayo Mosobalaje of the Department of English Language, Faculty of Arts.

In a statement by the University Public Relations Officer, Mr Abiodun Olarewaju, the governing council of the institution found him guilty of sexual demeanor against a female student.

The statement says, the council decision was taken after it deliberated on the report of its joint committee and Senate, which investigated the case of sexual harassment against him.

Accordingly, the university council has declared zero tolerance to sexual harassment in any form or guise and, accordingly, applied the appropriate university sanctions for such an offence as contained in the University regulation.

Recall that a Prof of Accounting from Obafemi University, Richard Akindele was dismissed in June 2018, having been found guilty of same offenses.

Prof Akindele was later prosecuted at the Federal High Court, Osogbo, where he pleaded guilty and was sentenced to two years in jail, while he was ordered to forfeit his mobile telephones to the federal government.
