Richard Akindele, a professor of Management Accounting at the Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU), Ile-Ife, has finally raised the veil on events that culminated in his dismissal by the institution.
Mr Akindele was recently dismissed after being found guilty of sexual harassment of a postgraduate student of the institution, Monica Osagie.
In his reply to a query issued to him by the university, Mr Akindele explained that the five rounds of sex demanded from Monica, as revealed by the leaked audio conversation between them, was a deliberate attempt to discourage the student and at the same time invite her to his office to obtain evidence.
Mr Akindele said the demand for five days of sex was a deliberate attempt to play along with the student. The university did not, however, buy his argument and dismissed the professor.
The reply was exclusively obtained and published by New Telegraph.
