Lagos State University (LASU) lecturer, Dr. Sunkanmi Odubunmi is currently cooling his feet in detention.
Dr. Sunkanmi Odubunmi, an Associate Professor of Economics at the Lagos State University, LASU, Ojo has been arrested by the security operatives of the institution for sexually harassing a female student of the department.
The professor was apprehended at his office while he was allegedly fondling the female student. The lecturer is said to be caught in the act three days to his promotion interview.
Sources told us that unknown to the lecturer that the student had been bugged with secret cameras and other gadgets, and was being monitored by officers of the university and an unnamed non-governmental organisation, who had monitored everything in a separate office close to his office.
We gathered that the student, who was persistently disturbed by the lecturer, had approached a Lagos-based NGO to seek intervention. The NGO was said to have notified the university management, which in turn promised to ‘play along’ towards catching the lecturer red handed.
Insiders disclosed that… “Odubunmi invited the student to his office on the said Saturday to rewrite the course he said he failed unknown to him that the lady had informed the authorities and was already equipped with recording gadgets. So as soon as the girl entered, he was handed the answer booklet and the question papers.”
“As soon as the girl was settling down to write, Odubunmi locked the door safely and began to undress. He began by caressing the student but as soon as he was moving near ‘dangerous zones,’ the girl showed resistance and while attempting to adjust her glasses for proper coverage, the lecturer suspected and shouted loudly accusing the girl of attempting to rape him. He immediately seized the eyeglasses and broke it into pieces.”
“This action had notified the security operatives in the adjoining room because they no longer saw signal. They immediately moved to his office and got him arrested.”
Speaking on the matter, Head, Centre for Information, LASU, said; “The incident happened about two weeks ago and the investigative panel on the matter had submitted report. The management has received the report of the disciplinary panel and it is currently before the university’s Joint Governing Council and Senate Committee for final determination.”
“I must let you know that the new management is seriously committed to rebranding this university, and no stone will be left unturned towards achieving this. Within two weeks, the investigative panel has submitted its report and that confirms the Prof. Olanrewaju Fagbohun led management’s commitment to fighting insanity.”
