Sex-for-mark lecturer, Prof Richard Akindele caught chanting incantations to hinder trial

It is no longer news that the Federal High Court in Osogbo has turned down the bail application of a former lecturer with the Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, Prof Richard Akindele.

Prof Richard Akindele was dragged before the court for allegedly demanding sex to upgrade the scores of one of his students, Monica Osagie.

The court rejected the bail application, which Akindele filed through his lawyer, Francis Omotoso, after the prosecuting counsel for the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission, Kehinde Ayantoye, opposed the application.

According to Punch, the prosecutor for the case alleged that the embattled professor was caught on tape chanting incantations to derail the case. It was further reported that the prosecutor alleged that Akindele was also involved in child pornography.

The judge, Justice Onyetenu expressed that the allegations raised were weighty and ordered the prosecutor to produce the tape in which Akindele was caught allegedly chanting incantations in court on the next hearing date.

The case was adjourned till December 17, 2018.
