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:

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.

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.
