Sexual harassment by lecturers in Nigerian Higher Institutions was the main topic recently when Prof Richard Akindele, a lecturer at Obafemi Awolowo University was exposed in a viral audio clip.

Prof Akindele in the clip demanded five round of sex from a female post-graduate student, Monica Osagie to increase her mark.

After investigating the scandal, the management of Obafemi Awolowo University suspended Prof Akindele, who according to reports is a Pastor at a Christ Apostolic Church in Ile-Ife.
