A Federal High Court in Osogbo has ordered the remand of Prof. Richard Akindele of the Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU) Ile-Ife, for demanding sex from his student, Monica Osagie.

Akindele was on Monday arraigned before Justice Maurine Onyetenu by the Independent Corrupt Practices and other related Offenses Commission (ICPC) on a four-count charge.

The ICPC alleged that the lecturer unlawfully demanded sex from his student and thereby committed an offense contrary to Section A (1)(2) of the corrupt practices and other related offenses.

The professor was also accused to have unlawfully had WhatsApp conversation with Osagie sometimes in June 2018, and thereby committed an offense contrary to the law.

He, however, pleaded not guilty to the four-count charge leveled against him by the ICPC.

Justice Onyetenu adjourned the matter till November 27 for hearing.
