#SexForGrades: More Victims Recount Their Experience With OAU Lecturer
Few days after Motunrayo Afolayan, a student of Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU), Ile-Ife released a recording of her lecturer demanding for sex from her, other victims have narrated their shocking experiences with the same lecturer.
It would be recalled that the 400-level student of the Department of International Relations, Motunrayo on the 15th of January accused a lecturer, Olabisi Olaleye, of sexually harassing her; while supporting it with an audio recording of the vulgar conversations between the lecturer and herself.
Listen to recording below:
lecturer at the dept had told everyone to come to his office to check their results. On getting there, Motun realized she failed. Mr. Olaleye told her he will give her a good grade if she was ready to have sex with him. Motun declined. But Mr. Olaleye had his “perfect plan” – as pic.twitter.com/izVQC3Vkn6— Karimot Odebode (@Lady_karimah) January 17, 2020
the lecturer in charge of examination timetable, he placed the course Motunrayo failed with a course in her 4th year on the same date and the same hour. Motunrayo was sad as that meant an extra year. She went ahead to meet with Olabisi Olaleye to reconsider the timetable.That was pic.twitter.com/goH4SngLyk— Karimot Odebode (@Lady_karimah) January 17, 2020
The audio recording is part of the evidence presented by Ms Afolayan before the panel set by the university authority to probe the allegations.
Meanwhile, the ordeal of Ms. Afolayan has led other students and alumni of the department to narrate their experiences with the same lecturer on Twitter with a trending hashtag – #OAUTakeBisiOut.
A number of them have supported their allegations with evidences including whatsapp message screenshots allegedly exchanged between them and the lecturer, Mr. Olaleye.
This is another chat between Mr Bisi Olaleye and another undisclosed student. Note that Mr B was recently involved in a sex for mark scandal. Kindly retweet after reading these chats beneath.

We’re not ready to keep shut untill we get our justice. For more than 7 months, Motunrayo has been a roller coaster of emotions. Barely able to read properly for her final year exam because of a beast. Beacause of Olabisi Olaleye. #OAUTakeBisiOut— Karimot Odebode (@Lady_karimah) January 18, 2020
And justice we seek, pic.twitter.com/7FL8O5jJIP
we have a host of ladies (alumni and current students) who are ready to testify. We have chats where he was seeking for sex from female students in exchange of grades. This matter will not die down. Justice for Motunrayo is justice for million more ladies#OAUTakeBisiOut— Karimot Odebode (@Lady_karimah) January 18, 2020
A female student, who doesn’t want to be named, wrote;
This one that I bought Joven (brand of wine) for (sic) severally, slept with me and still gave me E.
Another student wrote anonymously;
I can’t even remember how many times this mad man has slept with me. I didn’t want to have extra. Paying school fees wasn’t easy. I pray Ogunbodede (the vice-chancellor) puts this one away. He is a virus, he feeds on our fears.
While still investigating the claims of Ms. Motunrayo, the management of the university said it had halved the lecturer’s salaries pending the outcome of the matter before the panel.
Speaking with newsmen, the university’s spokesperson, Abiodun Olarewaju, said the university took the decision after it had confirmed the authenticity of the evidence presented by the accuser.
Mr Olarewaju said;
That is the tradition here. This does not mean that the matter has been concluded but based on the preliminary report presented by the gender centre, where the student had reported the matter.
