The female student involved in the “sex for mark” scandal with Professor Richard Akindele of the Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile Ife, Ms. Monica Osagie is to appear before the panel set up by the university authorities on Tuesday next week.

Dr Abiola- Afolabi stressed that a letter inviting her client to appear before the panel Tuesday, April 24, was just received by her on Friday April 20.
The letter dated April 19th, 2018, it was gathered was not released to the female student until 24 hours after the her lawyer denied claims of receiving any form of invitation.
Part of the letter inviting the MBA female student reads “I write at the instance of the Provost, Post-Graduate College to invite you to appear before the investigative panel on alleged harassment of a female student detailed in audio recording at its meeting which will come up at 10:00am on Tuesday April 24 2018.
The letter added, “Please be informed that on arrival, you are required to call the Secretary to the panel to facilitate your appearance before the panel. Thank you.”
