Following Vice Chancellor's reaction to the sex-for-mark saga in Obafemi Awolowo University, the lecturer who allegedly demanded for sex from a yet-to-be-identified female student has reportedly gone into hiding and deleted his Facebook account.

Prof Richard Akindele, a lecturer in the Department of Management and Accounting was allegedly heard in an audio recording demanding a sex romp from the student who scored 33 in his course to increase her grade.

The lecturer has however been at the middle of the storm since the audio conversation between him and the student went viral on Monday, April 9, 2018.

Efforts to reach the lecturer who is also a Pastor at the Christ Apostolic Church proved abortive as the embattled lecturer refused to respond to all calls. Prof Akindele has also deleted his Facebook account where some of his pictures were obtained and published by the media to report his alleged scandal.
