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.

Prophet Soul E predicts presidential election winner

Published

South Africa-based, Prophet Okose Ifechukwude Emmanuel formerly known as Soul E has predicted emphatically that President Muhammadu Buhari will win Saturday’s election.

Sometime last week, I tuned in to his Facebook live daily prayer broadcast where he usually pray and minister to his listeners from around the world.

We haven’t spoken much since he moved to South Africa where he is doing big things. He likes to call me his publicist. Our relationship goes back to that day I interviewed him and after, he began to pray and tell me deep things (story for another day).

So as his broadcast, he digressed spontaneously. He began to address those of us listening from Nigeria. Reaffirming himself, he disclosed how he said it from the start that President Buhari will do a two years tenure of four years apiece.

He stressed that the results of the election will shock many.

NHIS Crisis: Why we blocked Yusuf, dared armed police officers

 

Justice A. O. Faji of the Federal High Court sitting in Ikoyi, Lagos, on Thursday, February 21, 2019, admitted a document tendered in evidence by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, against Dr. Martins Oluwafemi Thomas, a former Executive Secretary, National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS).

Thomas was re-arraigned alongside one Kabiru Sidi, a Bureau De Change Operator, on June 28, 2017 on an amended six-count charge bordering on money laundering to the tune of $2,198,900 (Two Million, One Hundred and Ninety Eight Thousand Nine Hundred Dollars)

He was alleged to have conspired with his wife, Femi, to make a cash payment of the sum to one Ibitoye Bamidele at their residence on 20, Lagos University Teaching Hospital, Idi-Araba, Lagos.

The second defendant, Sidi was also said to have lied to an EFCC investigator, Afeez Mustapha that he was the owner of the money that the first defendant and his wife transacted with.

One of the count reads: “That you, Kabiru Sidi, on or about the 15th day of July, 2015, at the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission’s Lagos Zonal office, Ikoyi, before the jurisdiction of this Honorable Court, made a false statement to Afeez Mustapha, an investigating officer with the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission and thereby committed an offence contrary to Section 39 2(b)and punishable under Section 39 (2)(c)of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission Establishment Act, 2004.”

At the resumed hearing today, a prosecution witness, Emmanuel Egwu, who is the Director of Finance, NHIS, gave a breakdown of total amounts of the entitlements, salaries and emoluments received by Thomas while he worked at the NHIS between November 2013 and May 2015.

Egwu, the third prosecution witness, PW3, while being led in evidence by counsel for the EFCC, Ekele Iheanacho, revealed that the total money Thomas received in his official capacity was a sum of N62,919,154.75 (Sixty- two Million, Nine Hundred and Nineteen Thousand, One Hundred and Fifty- Four Naira, Seventy-Five Kobo) only.

When Egwu sought to tender the said documents as evidence, there was no objection by counsels for the defendants.

The documents were, thereafter, admitted in evidence as exhibits F1 and F2 respectively.

When counsel to the first defendant, Collins Ogbona, asked the witness, during cross-examination, if he knew the first defendant personally and all his sources of income, the witness said: “I only know the first defendant in his official capacity as well as only his official income.”

Consequently, Justice Faji adjourned the case to March 8, 19 and 20, 2019 for continuation of trial.

It’s okay for women to send nudes, just don’t betray her – Lady says

So the blame now comes on the man when he betrays such trust to leak her nude on the internet

Read her post:

Women send nudes out of Love, also trying to keep their relationship. If she loves you and trust you why betray that trust? There’s no excuse for leaking her nudes even if she cheated.

In another post, she wrote that women hardly leak their nudes and it is mostly done by men who she regarded as betrayers

Women hardly leak nudes sent to them by their boyfriend, I have never seen one. But I don’t know what’s wrong with some men. You will beg your girlfriend for nude, she will send you out of Love… you’d then want to blackmail her. Imagine if a guy did that to your Sis.
