Prof. Richard Akindele

A Federal High Court sitting in Osogbo has sentenced a former lecturer of Obafemi Awolowo University, OAU, Professor Richard Akindele, to two years in prison.

Justice Maurine Onyetenu sentenced Professor Akindele on Monday in Osun State, at the end of his trial for demanding sex in exchange for marks from one of his students, Miss Monica Osagie.

The accused had pleaded not guilty to the four charges of sexual harassment preferred against him by the Independent Corrupt Practices and other related offences Commission, ICPC.

He had since been remanded in prison custody following objection to his bail by the prosecution counsel.

He was arraigned before Justice Onyetenu on November 19 for alleged sexual harassment.

On Monday,Mr. Akindele opted to change his earlier plea and admitted guilty of the offences as charged.
