Sitting in front of Justice Maurine Onyetenu of the Federal High Court in Osogbo, popular sex-for-marks professor, Prof. Richard Iyiola Akindele, has been sentenced to six years imprisonment for demanding sex from a student in order for her to pass his course.
Earlier today when the case came up, Akindele opted to change his earlier plea and admitted to being guilty as charged.
Meanwhile, efforts by the defense counsel to suspend the sentencing and negotiate for plea bargains fell on deaf ears, as Justice Onyetenu frowned at the rampant and incessant cases of students harassment by lecturers.
She maintained that the jail term should run concurrently. She also gave order that the Samsung X4 of the victim should be returned back to her and the Samsung X8 of the convict be forfeited to the custody of the federal government.
