Sex scandal: Sacked UNIOSUN lecturer seeks open probe.

Sacked lecturer of Osun State University (UNIOSUN), Dr. Bode Ojoniyi, has called for an independent review of the circumstances surrounding an alleged sex-tape involving him and a female student of the institution, which led to the termination of his appointment.

Ojoniyi has petitioned the Chairman of the university’s Governing Council, Yusuf Ali (SAN), calling for a review of the issues leading to his dismissal.

Until his disengagement last week, Ojoniyi was a lecturer at the Department of Languages and Linguistics, Ikire Campus of UNIOSUN.

In the petition, the embattled lecturer faulted the grounds on which his dismissal was based, and wondered why he would be sacked on the pages of newspaper without any official communication to him.

According to him, his brawl with some powerful forces in his Department and the university began “when I insisted that justice must be done in a case of manipulation of results of the 400Level 2013/2014 Session of the Department of Languages and Linguistics by a certain lecturer in the department”.

Ojoniyi stated that the lady in the purported sex video tape, which the university relied on to sack him, severally confessed before various panels set up by the institution to look into the matter, that there was neither a case of harassment, coercion, nor sex-for-marks.

In an audio recording tagged, “Dr. Bode Ojoniyi vs Prof. Alebiosu Panel – Uniosun”, which he attached to the petition, the lecturer alleged that “there was an attempt to get him to agree to certain terms and to meet certain people for a settlement of some issues”.

Bricklayer arrested and arraigned for impregnating LASU lecturer’s wife.

A Lagos State University, LASU lecturer, Suraju Oyekunle, is reportedly facing a humiliating dilemma in his marriage after his wife openly confessed to being in love with a bricklayer.

The wife, Kafayat, who is said to be pregnant for the bricklayer, said she prefers to spend the rest of her life with him, P.M News is reporting.

According to the report, the 36-year-old wife moved out of her matrimonial home in October when her husband traveled, and then moved in with Mr. Alimi, who was living in the same Igando community where she and her husband were living in Lagos.

She was said to have taken along with her, a 12-year-old son she had for her husband.

The lecturer is, however, reportedly working hard to save his 13-year-old marriage to Kafayat as he lodged a complaint against him at the police station and 34-year-old Alimi was arrested by the police.

He was arraigned before Chief Magistrate, Mrs. O. A Layinka at an Ikeja Chief Magistrates’ Court weekend for conduct likely to cause breach of peace.

Speaking before the court, Kafayat vowed to do all she could to secure freedom for Alimi.

She said she left her marriage because she and her husband were unable to get another child during their 13 years in marriage, and that the husband wasn’t taking good care of her.

She added that she became pregnant for her lover few months after they met, and that with him, she was now living in peace.

“He is better off than my husband in everything and my family supports my relationship with him,” she stated.

The accuse pleaded not guilty.

The chief magistrate reportedly granted him bail in the sum of N25, 000, ordering that he be remanded in prison custody until he meets the bail conditions.

The matter was adjourned till December 12 for trial.

UNIOSUN sacks randy lecturer involved in sex video.

The Governing Council of the Osun State University, Osogbo, has terminated the appointment of Dr. Olabode Ojoniyi of the Department of Languages and Linguistics, Ikire Campus, caught on video having an amorous relationship with one of his students, Mercy Ikwue.

Our correspondent gathered on Sunday that the Governing Council headed by Mallam Yusuf Ali SAN, sacked the lecturer, who appeared nude on a bed in a hotel room and caressing Miss Ikwue.

A member of the Governing Council confirmed the sacking of Ojoniyi to our correspondent in Osogbo on Sunday.

He said, “The Council met last week and the report of the panel that investigated Ojoniyi’s amorous affair with the female student was deliberated upon. His appointment was terminated because that is the penalty stated in the Code of Conduct of Staff of Osun State University.”

Apart from the member of the Governing Council, three other lecturers including two professors confirmed to our correspondent that Ojoniyi had been sacked.

Part II articles 15 and 23 of the Code of Conduct for Staff and Students of UNIOSUN read, “ An academic staff shall not conduct himself/ herself in relation to students in such a manner that derogates from his status as a lecturer, examiner and adviser. Specifically, sexual harassment of students by (members of) staff is totally forbidden. Any (member of) staff found guilty of sexual harassment shall be dismissed from the service of the university and may be handed over to relevant state authority for prosecution.

“An academic (member of) staff shall not demand from students any gratification whether in cash or in kind including sexual gratification in the discharge of his/her lawful duties. Breach of this code shall warrant appropriate sanction ranging from warning to termination of appointment depending on the gravity of the offence.”

Ojoniyi’s sex act was captured in a video which is believed to have been surreptitiously recorded by the female student.

The female student was said to have been pressurised by Ojoniyi for sex and she eventually agreed and followed him to their agreed place with a laptop computer from which she pretended to be watching a movie, Things Fall Apart. Unknown to him, Miss Ikwue was actually recording their sexual activities.

Ojoniyi had accused one of the lecturers of the university, who was recently dismissed for an alleged misconduct as the person behind the drama. According to him, the lady was contracted to blackmail him. But Ojoniyi did not deny being the one in the video.

The video clip went viral afterwards and Ojoniyi, when contacted by our correspondent did not deny that he was the one in the video and did not say his image was manipulated. He only blamed his detractors for the incident.

The Acting Registrar of UNIOSUN, Bayo Shittu, who doubles as the secretary of the council, did not pick repeated calls put across to his telephone line.

He had yet to reply to the text sent to him to officially confirm the sacking as of the time of filing this report.

A professor at the university recently resigned his appointment over the alleged rape of a female student in his office.

Some lecturers and students of the university told our correspondent that the professor knew that he would be sacked if the case was investigated and he hurriedly resigned to prevent the embarrassment which would follow.
