OAU Student Records Lecturer Threatening To Fail Her In A Course Over Sex

Published

on

Olabisi Olaleye, a lecturer in the department of International Relations at Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU), Ile-Ife has been allegedly nabbed in an audio recording by a student of the institution, Motunrayo Afolayan who accused him threatening to fail her in his course for refusing to sleep with him.

Afolayan was allegedly first failed in ‘Diplomacy’ IRS 305 which Olaleye teaches with a female lecturer identified as Omolara Akinyemi, during the 2017/2018 academic calendar while in 300 Level.

Upon registering the course again during the 2018/2019 academic session, the student allegedly received repeated threats from the lecturer who allegedly said “she would fail again and again if she refuses to sleep with him.”

A senior member of the Business Administration faculty who is familiar with the story, told Premium Times that Afolayan approached a lecturer in her department, Sunday Omotuyi for help on the case but he reportedly declined.

The source said: “But Omotuyi declined to intervene. He said he had approached the same lecturer in 2014 on behalf of another student but Olaleye flared up and insulted him. He even walked him out of his office. He said Omotuyi was too “junior” to talk to him on such matter. He even asked the student to go as far as the office of the vice-chancellor to report him”

Afolayan who held back an audio recording of Olaleye threatening her in order not to be subjected to public ridicule, was forced to play the recording of the lecturer saying in Yoruba “I promise you would fail this course three times except you sleep with me”, after other lecturers demanded for proof.

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.

Security operatives deployed to disperse members of #RevolutionNow movement in Abuja have shaved off the hair of a protester with a knife and broken bottle.

The victim revealed that the officers asked him to prostrate on the floor before one of them pulled out a knife while another used a broken bottle to cut off his dreadlocks and shave his hair.

The young man said that the security agents harassed him for wearing “brown hair’ since he was not a woman.

Another protester with bruises on his back, Damilare Ademola, said he was dehumanised and battered by the security operatives for taking part in the protest to demand better governance from the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari.

He said he was flogged with iron and chain and kicked to the ground for no reason.

He said, “I was beaten by more than four soldiers and policemen. They slapped me several times and kicked me with boots. They also collected my phone and did not return it to me.

“It is unfortunate that this government does not accommodate civic space. There is no freedom of speech in Nigeria again.”

Dozens Of #RevolutionNow Protesters Arrested In Abuja

Published

on

Dozens of #RevolutionNow protesters in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Abuja were arrested by security agents on Wednesday.

The protest, it was learnt, was to hold at the Federal Secretariat but was later moved to the Transcorp Junction around Unity Fountain, Abuja.

From around 8am, it was observed armed security operatives, including the Police, the Military and DSS among others, patrolled the area in a convoy of trucks.

At about 9am, some protesters, who turned up around the Unity Fountain, were arrested by security operatives and taken away in their trucks.

The protests eventually held at various locations of the FCT, it was gathered.

Convener of Concerned Nigerians, Deji Adeyanju, alleged 62 protesters were arrested.

“We are back to the Abacha days and this is most unfortunate. We are back to a time again in our national life when the government of the day has criminalized peaceful protests.

“Today we witnessed flogging, beating, harassing and arresting of peaceful protesters in the nation’s capital by a joint task force of security agencies.

“Many of us begin to wonder if this is what our democracy has come to be. It is most regrettable and unfortunate.

But this is the sad and painful reality that we have found ourselves today. Alas this is where we are as a nation,” Adeyanju said.

At Berger Junction, another location of the protests, one of the protesters, Pelumi Olajengbesin, a lawyer, said: “Our demand today is that there is need for us to have a conscious political revolution.

“There is a need for us to have a change of leadership. There is a need for us to have people who have clear focus, who have passion and the welfare of the interest of the people. This cannot be achieved by the political conglomeration of charlatans in authority.

“There is need for us to allow people who are determined and who have the interest of the people to take over leadership and that is why we are saying no to APC, no to PDP and no to all the rascals in political authority.

“I want to call on all Nigerians that nobody should feel so comfortable in their bedrooms. Nobody should feel so comfortable in their houses, because this country is not safe, this country is not secure. Nobody is secure.

“Even in Nigeria today police and soldiers are not secured. Even today, Generals cannot walk alone on the street.

“I want us to know that if we don’t take our future in our hands, if we don’t take our destiny in our hands, this country would continue to remain like this.

“There is no single sector in the Nigerian social system that is working today. If you look at the educational system, it is in shambles, if you look at the economy, it is in a total mess.

“This is because we have people who lack focus, who lack direction, who lack sympathy and who are selfish in positions of authority and that is why I myself as a legal practitioner, as someone who believes in the Revolution Now struggle have come out to identify with this cause.”
