The Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) yesterday informed authorities of the Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU), Ile-Ife, Osun State that mere dismissal of Prof. Richard Akindele of the Department of Management and Accounting, who was found guilty of sexual harassment was not enough.

The commission called for proper prosecution of the professor for sexually harassing a female student of the university.

Akindele who already had been indicted by the university was accused of sexually harassing a female student, Monica Osagie in an exchange over marks for sex.

Speaking at a sensitisation forum in Abuja organised by Youth Alive Foundation (YAF), ICPC Commissioner for Education, Mohammed Bade explained that it was disingenuous for the OAU authorities to have ignored the prosecution of Akindele

Bade, who was speaking on corruption in tertiary institutions said that discoveries have also been made about a lot of cases that border on moral corruption like sexual harassment in the universities in particular. He assured the audience that prosecutions of such cases are already in the works.
