OAU Sacks 70 Years Old Lecturer Caught In Sex Scandal



           

The Governing Council of Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife OAU has dismissed Dr. Adebayo Mosobalaje, a lecturer at the Department of English Language in the Faculty of Art, who was allegedly found guilty of sexual manner against a female student.

This was announced in a statement by the university’s Public Relations Officer of the University, Abiodun Olarewaju, titled, ‘Sexual harassment: OAU dismisses another lecturer’, on Tuesday.

But when contacted for comment, Mosobolaje neither picked his telephone calls nor responded to a text message sent to him.

The PUNCH gathered that the female student was admitted into OAU in 2013 but had outstanding courses.

In 2017, the female student was said to have visited Mosobalaje in his office for further instructions on her final year project work when the alleged sexual assault reportedly happened.

On July 5, 2018, a petition that indicted the lecturer was sent to the university’s vice-chancellor, Eyitope Ogunbodede.

Based on the report, an investigative panel was set up by the VC and the lecturer had to resign as a member of the university’s governing council representing the convocation.

Mosobolaje denied the allegations when he appeared before the investigative panel.
