The embattled lecturer at the Department of Languages and Linguistics of the Osun State University, Ikire Campus, Dr. Wale Ojoniyi, has said the truth about the s*x video released by a 400level student of the institution, Mercy Ikwue, will soon prevail.
Ojoniyi said this in a text message to Punch yesterday in response to the story. The lecturer described the video as a lie but did not say the man in the video was not him or that the tape was manipulated.
His text message read:
“Congratulations, Femi Makinde. When you know the truth, it will either set you free or imprison your conscience …..And very soon, you will know the truth. I have just read your lies.”
He was also silent on who might be behind the scandalous video clip.
Meanwhile, some students of the UNIOSUN campus in Ikire, expressed delight that the scandal was eventually blown open for everybody to see.
The students, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said the matter would curb such practice which they claimed was not limited to Dr. Ojoniyi.
The students said Ikwue petitioned the school authority about the case and the lecturer was also suspended. They added that Ojoniyi just resumed from the suspension.
One of the students said there were many unreported cases of s*xual assault going on in the school but nobody is ready to complain because of alleged cover-up and solidarity from other lecturers.
A former student said, “One of them (lecturers) who supervised me almost failed me. He asked me to come and meet him at a hotel on many occasions. I obliged but refused to let him have s*x with me.
“It’s a pity I did not have a hidden camera, I would have nailed him like what was done to Ojoniyi. I had to complain when it became obvious that he would not let me go. I was assigned to another lecturer but that second lecturer did not demand anything outside academics from me.”
Dr. Ojoniyi was seen in the video clip n*ked with the female student in a hotel room (pic above).
It was gathered that the lecturer had been pestering the student for an amorous affairs but the lady refused. Ojoniyi was however reported to be instrumental to the suspension of the student who was caught for examination malpractice.
Upon her resumption, the lecturer was said to have continued to pester her and she eventually agreed and met him in a hotel where she surreptitiously recorded him during the act.
