The problem of sex-threat in Nigerian Higher institutions has been a dragging problem over the years without been properly addressed.
And maybe the most recent report and disgrace of a Professor demanding sex to pass a student might cause Nigerian authorities to look at this problem critically.
An audio, also serving as evidence, has been circulating online. According to the audio, a Professor of the Obafemi Awolowo University, was demanding sex from a female student. Identified as Professor Richard Akindele, the prof demanded sex to pass the said female student.
According to the audio obtained by Sahara Reporters, the student asked the lecturer about his previous demand to pass a particular course he is teaching. His demand would avoid her ‘carrying over’ the course to another academic year.
Retorting to her initial question, the prof tells the student to quit asking questions and take the opportunity he presented her with or risk repeating a year.
The student then goes on to confirm that truly she had gotten her period the first time he had made sexual demands to her.
Her reply was to the prof’s accusation of her pretending to be on her period when he first demanded sex.
Insisting she actually had her period then, she said, “I was really seeing my period Professor Akindele.”
At this, the prof requires she quit mentioning his name, then proceeds to ask if she is through with her period.
When she affirms that she has, he then asks if she has has slept with her boyfriend:
After their back and forth, he finalizes with saying he’ll sleep with her five times before he can give her a pass.
Although all efforts to reach the prof has been inutile, one wonders if the governing authorities would really get to the root of this matter.
Already, reports are that investigations are undergoing to address this case.
