Languages and Linguistics of Osun
State University, Ikire Campus, Dr.
Wale Ojoniyi, is currently in trouble
following the release of a video of
his alleged s*x escapade with a 400 level English student of the institution, Mercy Ikwue.
The student, who released the over
30-minute video clip, recorded it in a hotel room. Some however claimed the lecturer r*ped the lady.
The real s*xual act was not captured in the video. There was also no attempt by the man in the video to coerce the student to cooperate with him.
In a petition written to Punch, some
students of the university claimed
that Ojoniyi was instrumental to the
suspension of the female student,
after she was allegedly caught for
examination malpractices. On her return to the university after
one academic session rustication, the petition claimed the lecturer
mounted pressure on the student for an amorous affair but the lady
It was further learnt that the lady
confided in some persons, who
advised her to set a trap for Ojoniyi
by agreeing to his love advances.
She eventually went to the agreed
hotel room and met him. In the video, which was also made
available, the lady set up a laptop
directly opposite the bed and
pretended to be watching the
‘Things Fall Apart’ film on it but she
was recording the s*xual activity.
Although there was no act of s*xual
intercourse captured in the video,
the man in the video was seen
n*ked and caressing the student
In the video, Miss Ikwue was seen
throwing her blue top on the bed
from an angle she knew the camera
could not cover. She also ensured
that the camera lense did not capture her when she removed her trousers.
She wore her top throughout the
34-minute duration of the show and used the bedsheet as a wrapper.
He came to the bed n*ked oblivious
of the trap set for him, dangled his
manhood all-through the act. The audio quality of the video clip
was poor but some of the
conversations can still be heard.
The female student said at one point,
“Give me my transport. I am not
asking for any other money, just
give me my transport fare. Why is
your thing (private part) dropping
like this, haven’t you done it in recent time.
“Before I went on suspension, why
didn’t you plead on my behalf? You
knew about it joo.”
Dr. Ojoniyi when asked by Punch if
he was aware of the video said he
had heard of it. He said,
“I also heard of the video. It is being investigated.”
Asked if he believed that the video
was a handiwork of those who
might want to bring him down, he
"People can do anything, but I
cannot be brought down.”
