OAU’S “SEX FOR MARKS LECTURER” TO REMAIN IN PRISON CUSTODY.

OAU’S “SEX FOR MARKS LECTURER” TO REMAIN IN PRISON CUSTODY.

Federal High Court in Osogbo on Tuesday declined to grant the bail application of Professor Richard Iyiola Akindele, former lecturer with Obafemi Awolowo University.

His counsel, Francis Omotoso had filed for bail for his client but was vehemently opposed by the counsel to the ICPC Kehinde Ayatonye through a counter affidavit deposed by a detective Afolabi Oluwatoyin to the bail application.

Presiding judge, Justice Maureen , pointed out that the counter affidavit was too weighty and directed Ayatonye to provide evidence to back the claims in the counter affidavit.

She thereafter ordered that professor Akindele be remanded in prison custody until 17th December 2018.
