A lecturer at the Department of Languages and Linguistics of the Osun State University, Ikire Campus, Dr. Wale Ojoniyi, has been caught on tape stark naked trying to have sex with a 400 level student of the institution, Mercy Ikwue.
The lecturer described the video as a lie but did not say the man in the video was not him or that the tape was manipulated.
He was also silent on who might be behind the scandalous video clip.
Meanwhile, some students of the UNIOSUN campus in Ikire, who spoke on Thursday, expressed delight that the scandal was eventually blown open for everybody to see.
The students, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said the matter would curb such practice which they claimed was not limited to Ojoniyi.
The students said Ikwue petitioned the school authority about the case and the lecturer was also suspended. They added that Ojoniyi just resumed from the suspension.
One of the students said there were many unreported cases of sexual assault going on in the school but nobody was ready to complain officially because of alleged cover-up and solidarity from other lecturers.
A former student said, “One of them (lecturers) who supervised me almost failed me. He (name withheld) asked me to come and meet him at a hotel on many occasions. I obliged but refused to let him have sex with me.
“It’s a pity I did not have a hidden camera, I would have nailed him like what was done to Ojoniyi. I had to complain when it became obvious that he would not let me go. I was assigned to another lecturer but that second lecturer did not demand anything outside academics from me.”
Ojoniyi was seen in the video clip naked with the female student in a hotel room.
The lecturer, who was stark naked, was seen caressing the lady intermittently but the female student who recorded the sexual activities with a webcam did not remove her top and she used the bedsheet as a wrapper all through the duration of the recording.
It was gathered that the lecturer had been pestering the student for an amorous affairs but the lady refused. Ojoniyi was however reported to be instrumental to the suspension of the student who was caught for examination malpractice.
Upon her resumption, the lecturer was said to have continued to pester her and she eventually agreed and met him in a hotel where she surreptitiously recorded the video.
