The Sun Newspaper Today 14-4-2018. OAU sex-for-mark scandal: probe panel hits brick wall. Why would the probe panel hit brick wall? Like I expressed in my article "NOW IS THE TIME", the prevalence of sexual harassment and sexual assaults in Nigerian universities, is that there is a near total neglect of the issue and lack of will to even discuss it.

 Lecturers who are indicted of sexual impropriety like Mr Richard Akindele, are merely told to go and sin no more.

Apart from few cases involving well-connected students, hardly do Nigerian universities fire lecturers for sexually harassing female students. They have threatened the girl I guess.

DAILY POST recalls that a telephone conversation involving the lecturer and the student was posted on social media platforms on April 9, where the female student accused him of demanding sex-for-marks.

The yet to be identified female student, had called the Professor to inquire about his earlier demand for sex to pass her in the lecturer’s course that she supposedly failed.

The lecturer responded by telling the student that she would repeat the exam in the next academic session since she had refused to “take the opportunity” he offered her to have sex with him.

Meanwhile, as the media was awash with the report, which generated huge reactions amongst Nigerians, the university management through the Vice-chancellor, Prof. Eyitope Ogunbodede on Wednesday in a press statement said the university had set up an investigation panel to unravel individuals involved in the mess.
