LASU dismisses 3 Randy Lecturers over ‘sex-for-marks’

Published

on

The Lagos State University (LASU) has sacked three of its senior lecturers over alleged sexual misconduct.

In a statement on Tuesday, Ademola Adekoya, the university’s spokesperson, said their dismissal was approved by the governing council of the university at its 119th statutory meeting on October 4.

The affected lecturers were identified as Ayoola Odubunmi, an associate professor of economics; Isiaka Ogunwande, an associate professor of chemistry and Emmanuel Gbeleyi, a lecturer in the department of anatomy.

Adekoya said the lecturers were queried after which a disciplinary committee constituted to look into the allegation passed its final findings to the governing council.

One of the victims was said have contacted a non-governmental organisation (NGO) to wade into the matter after one of the associate professors had made repeated overtures at her.

The NGO had planted a hidden camera on the lady who proceeded to meet the lecturer in his office on a Saturday after he invited her to rewrite a particular course she failed.

The lecturer was allegedly caught on camera molesting the female student while he gave her the examination paper to keep writing. The university security officials who were on standby were said to have swooped on them and arrested the randy lecturer.

Gbeleyi, on his part, was reported by two female students who he asked to buy an injection, which he was accused to have used to sedate them before having sex with them.

In June, the management of Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU) in Osun state had fired Richard Akindele, a lecturer who allegedly demanded five sessions of sex from Monica Osagie, a postgraduate student of the institution, to award her a pass mark in a course she failed.

EFCC Vows to arrest Innoson Motors Boss, Innocent Chukwuma …as Court Strikes Out Fraud Case Against Him The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has vowed to ensure that the Chairman, Innoson Motors Nigeria Limited, Innocent Chukwuma is arrested to face fraud charges in court. The Commission gave the assurance today, after Justice Olusola Williams of the Special Offences Court sitting in Ikeja, Lagos, struck out the case of fraud it instituted against Chukwuma. The Judge struck out the case after the EFCC failed to produce Chukwuma in court to face trial. Chuwuma and his company, Innoson Motors Nigeria Limited, were to be arraigned on a four-count charge of conspiracy to obtain by false pretences, obtaining by false pretence, stealing and forgery. The defendants allegedly committed the offences between 2009 and July 2011 in Lagos. The defendants were alleged to have conspired to obtain, by false pretences, containers of motorcycles, spare parts and raw materials, property of Guaranty Trust Bank, from Mitsui OSK Lines Limited, Apapa, Lagos. They were also alleged to have fraudulently induced staff of Mitsui OSK and Maersk Line to deliver to them, via their clearing agents, the goods that were imported from China in the name of GTB by falsely pretending that they were authorized by the bank to clear the goods. The defendants were said to have forged a bill of lading numbered 598286020 of Maersk Line Limited and 11007950841 of Mussui O.S.K. Line by knowingly putting a false GTB stamp and signature of the bank staff. The alleged fraud was in order that the forged documents be used or acted upon as genuine to the prejudice of any person within Lagos or elsewhere. However, since the suit was instituted, first before Justice Mojisola Dada of the same court, the defendant has refused to appear in court to face his trial. In a short ruling today, Justice Williams held that it was the responsibility of the EFCC to produce him in court. “This court is not an investigator or a prosecutor. This court cannot waste precious judicial time prosecuting a matter that is going nowhere. “This is a criminal matter that can be instituted anytime the prosecution is ready. The court hereby strikes out the matter,” the Judge held. It will be recalled that Justice Dada had, on June 22, 2018, withdrawn from presiding over the matter on the recommendation of the National Judicial Council (NJC). All efforts by the EFCC to arraign the defendant before Justice Dada on five consecutive occasions failed despite being declared wanted on May 23, 2018 and also issuance of a bench warrant by the court.

Less than two-week-old baby has been abducted by ritualists at Uro-Ajowa in the Akoko North-West Local Government Area of Ondo State, on Thursday while the mother of the baby, Mrs Oluwaseun Olomodi, was still sleeping.

Two suspected ritualists reportedly sneaked into the room where the newborn baby and the mother were sleeping and took the baby away, for apparent money rituals.

The source said, “It happened around 1am on Thursday. The hoodlums gained entry into the house through the kitchen. After the hoodlums had abducted the baby, an elderly woman, who woke up at that time and attempted to rescue the baby, was cut with a machete by the hoodlums.

“The elderly woman’s scream woke up the neighbours and the victim’s mother, but the kidnappers had left.

Immediately, the community members started combing the bushes but their efforts have not yielded any fruit up until now. “

The Public Relations Officer for the Ondo State Police Command, Mr Femi Joseph, said the police had begun investigation into the matter.
