Since the past week, there’s been plenty of hue and cry centred around the sex-for-mark scandal involving a university don and a female undergraduate. The said lecturer and professor is alleged to have requested five rounds of sex as gratification to upgrade a student’s mark to a passable grade.
In the midst of the brouhaha, Professor Richard Akindele, the man in the midst of the storm hasn’t said much regarding the veracity or otherwise of the student’s claim. However, his wife of many years has been talking. Mrs Akindele, who incidentally lectures in the same university has cried out about her husband’s innocence. What’s more, like the typical Nigerian, she has put the blame of the disgraceful allegation at the feet of the devil.
