The governing council of Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU) has dismissed Professor Richard Akindele from the services of the University for gross misconduct.
Vice Chancellor of OAU, Professor Eyitope Ogunbodede, disclosed this to reporters after the meeting of the council on Wednesday.
He said the council, after its findings, concluded that Professor Akindele had an inappropriate relationship with one of his students, Miss Osagie, a claim to which he admitted.
Council also discovered that the don had offered to change Osagie’s 33 per cent result to a pass mark, in consideration for sexual favours.
According to the vice chancellor, this was established in an audio recording (that went viral in April) which Akindele also admitted to.
