Sexual harassment earns Professor Akindele two years imprisonment



A former lecturer at the Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, Prof Richard Akindele, has been sentenced to two years imprisonment.

The judgment was given today (Monday) by the Federal High Court sitting in Osogbo, where the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission dragged him to, after the OAU had dismissed him.

Akindele had earlier pleaded guilty to the charges of sexual harassment he is facing.

He was arraigned on a three-count charge bothering on “using his position as a lecturer in the Department of Management and Accounting to demand for sexual benefit from a student and fraudulently upgrade her result in Research Method course which she supposedly failed in 2017”.
