Sexual harassment in schools

Last year, Richard Akindele, a professor at the Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU) was jailed after a postgraduate student, Monica Osagie accused him of sexual demands.

In leaked audio, the professor demanded to have sex with the student to upgrade her score from 33% to a ‘pass grade’.

Over the years, lecturers have escaped sexual harassment cases due to the absence of concrete evidence and ‘consent’ defence claim by suspects, as contained in the Criminal and Penal Codes.
