The Governing Council of the Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU), Ile-Ife, has dismissed another Lecturer, who was found guilty of s*xual demeanour against a female student.
The Public Relations Officer of the University, Mr Abiodun Olarewaju, announced this in a statement he issued to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Tuesday, in Ile-Ife. He said the action was in line with the institution’s avowed determination to rid the university of any form of s*xual int*m*dation, h*r*ssment and or coercion.
The statement noted that the decision to dismiss Dr. Adebayo Mosobalaje of the Department of English Language, in the Faculty of Arts, was taken by the council at its last sitting on Tuesday, Sept. 7.
It further reaffirmed that the Joint Committee of the Council and Senate had earlier investigated the case against Mosobalaje and their report was deliberated upon by the institution’s authorities.
