    UNIOSUN fires lecturer over sex video scandal


    The Governing Council of the University of Osun (UNIOSUN) has terminated the appointment of one of its lecturers who was caught in a sex video with one of his students, The Punch reports.
    The lecturer, Dr. Olabode Ojoniyi of the Department of Languages and Linguistics, Ikire Campus, who was caught on video having an amorous relationship with one of his students, Mercy Ikwue has been sacked by the Mallam Yusuf Ali (SAN) led Governing Council.
    Ojoniyi’s sack was confirmed by a member of the Council who spoke on the condition of anonymity.
    He said, “The Council met last week and the report of the panel that investigated Ojoniyi’s amorous affair with the female student was deliberated upon. His appointment was terminated because that is the penalty stated in the Code of Conduct of Staff of Osun State University.”
    Part II articles 15 and 23  of the Code of Conduct for Staff and Students of UNIOSUN read, “ An academic staff shall not conduct himself/ herself in relation to students in such a manner that derogates from his status as a lecturer, examiner and adviser. Specifically, sexual harassment of students by (members of) staff is totally forbidden.
    Any (member of) staff found guilty of sexual harassment shall be dismissed from the service of the university and may be handed over to relevant state authority for prosecution.
    “An academic (member of) staff shall not demand from students any gratification whether in cash or in kind including sexual gratification in the discharge of his/her lawful duties.
     Breach of this code shall warrant appropriate sanction ranging from warning to termination of appointment depending on the gravity of the offence.”
