UNIOSUN sacks lecturer over sex tape
The management of Osun State University (UNIOSUN) has revealed its reasons for sacking one of their lecturers, Dr. Wale Ojoniyi, who was involved in a sex video scandal.
The newly appointed Vice-Chancellor of the institution, Prof. Labode Poopola, shared the information during an interactive session in Osogbo on Tuesday, November 15, Vanguard reports.
In the Vice-Chancellor’s words;
“We have to nip the scandal in the bud. Whatever has happened in UNIOSUN happens in any profession. Just that it is worse if it happens here (UNIOSUN), because a lecturer is supposed to be a parent. It is worse; it is an immoral act and should be condemned.
“The system has laid down methods of dealing with any one that engages in such. There are disciplinary measures, no lecturer will have infractions on our values and won’t be disciplined.
“If you followed the story, you will realise that this university is a product of law and none of its statues can be stampeded. When we find someone defaulting, the university takes all necessary steps.
“On this matter, the university took all the steps at all levels – Departmental, Faculty and Senate. Whatever you might read lately is the decision of the council. I am not in a position to say what next will be done.”
Following questions concerning the possible withdrawal of Ojoniyi’s doctorate degree, Poopola said,
“Degrees are earned and worked for. UNIOSUN can’t strip him of his degree but wherever he got it from. Degrees are issued on learning and character.”
Dr. Wale Ojoniyi was exposed following the release of a video tape of his alleged sex escapade with a 400 level English student.
He has been relieved of his duties at the institution.
