The lecturer identified as Olabisi Olaleye of the department of International Relations was busted in an audio recording made by the female student.
The lady identified as Miss Motunrayo Afolanya , a 400L students said that the said lecturer had failed her once and threatened to do the same again if she does not sleep with him, unknowingly, the conversation was being recorded. She later took the case up with the school’s authority as she couldn’t take it anymore. The school authority demanded proof and that was when she played the tape where he was heard saying in yoruba , I promise you will fail this course three times if you do not sleep with me.The lecturer is currently under investigation.
However, a Twitter user, Oluyemi Fasipe has took to his handle to expose the face of the lecturer.
This is the face of the OAU lecturer, Mr Olaleye I tweeted about last week. He was caught on tape threatening a female student “I promise you would fail this course three times except you sleep with me.” let’s make him famous.
The source added;
“So, she was in Olaleye’s office and just as predicted, Olaleye held her by the hand and began to fondle her. While he was carried away, the lady turned on the voice recording application on her phone and taped all his vulgar words including the threat.”
However after lecturers in her department couldn’t help out on the case, the distraught student approached lecturers in the faculty of law where a female lecturer advised her to report the matter to the university authorities.
Her result which showed that she passed the course was released after Olaleye allegedly heard that the matter has escalated.
A panel headed by Yetunde Ajibade, provost of the university’s postgraduate college and the first female provost of the college was constituted and they have already met with Mr Olaleye; Mr Omotuyi, whom the matter was first reported to; Kehinde Olayode, Head of Department, International Relations, among others. Afolayan also appeared before the panel with other female students who corroborated her claim.
Though Olaleye denied the allegation verbally when interviewed by newsmen and in written response to a query he was served by the university’s authorities, Ms Afolayan said she had been advised to keep sealed lips until the university makes its verdict public.
Olaleye reportedly said;
“I didn’t know her until the timetable issue came up.
“She approached me with two other ladies but I told them I could not help. I only advised them to go and write their 400 level course first, and return to join us in the hall for my course.”
On why Afolayan’s result was withheld for a long time, Olaleye blamed it all on his colleague who he claimed was sorting out her accreditation issue. Asides being unable to recall when he got a job at the university, Olaleye reportedly couldn’t explain why he is yet to get his doctorate degree after enrolling for the program 13 years ago
