Sex-For-Marks: Sacked OAU Lecturer To Remain In Custody, Court Rules Today

The Federal High court sitting in Osogbo on Tuesday declined the bail application of an ex-lecturer with Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU), Professor Richard Akindele.

Akindele was earlier arraigned by Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) for allegedly demanding sex in exchange for marks from Monica Osagie, a postgraduate student of the institution.

The presiding Judge, Justice Maureen Onyetenu at the last proceedings adjourned for definite trial and hearing application for bail but asked that Professor Akindele be remanded in prison.

At the hearing on Tuesday, the ICPC counsel, Kehinde Adetoye, told the court that they were ready to open the case for trial and had a witness in court out of six witnesses.

However, the trial could not go on because the lead counsel for ICPC was absent in court due to some other official assignment and he wanted to personally conduct the case.

The defence counsel, however, moved the application for bail which the ICPC counsel objected to.

The court then ordered that the facts alluded to in the counter affidavit of the prosecuting counsel needed to be corroborated with evidence.

The judge then adjourned till 17th of December to enable all parties to produce evidence alluded to in the affidavit.

Learn About The Perfect Yacht For A Long Voyage

If you are planning a cruise on a yacht, then, most likely, you have already decided which exotic places you want to visit. However, choosing an appropriate vessel for a cruise is not always easy!

Our experts know what to look for when choosing a suitable yacht!

Do you want to buy a luxury yacht at a reasonable price? Visit! An excellent choice of modern luxury yachts as a gift for you or for business from real sellers!

Jiji is used by all online shoppers who appreciate convenience, large assortment and security: online-marketplace # 1 in Nigeria carefully checks all the newly-registered users and features a user-friendly interface, an efficient search system with filters, direct contact with buyers and sellers and the most reliable fraud protection system!


Aluminum, pluses:
● durable body;
● excellent microclimate in the cabins;
● well protected from lightning;
● no osmosis.

Aluminum, minuses:
● expensive internal insulation;
● significant time required for the construction of the yacht;
● large consumption of materials.

Fiberglass, pluses:
● absorbs noise better than aluminum;
● preferable for small boats;
● small repair costs;
● relatively light weight and high speed;
● easy maintenance.

Fiberglass, minuses:
● insufficient body sturdiness.

What is better: a monohull or a catamaran yacht?

A monohull, pluses:
● occupies less space in the port;
● when overkill, they return to their normal position automatically.

A monohull, minuses:
● the internal layout of a single-hulled vessel is almost always the same, which means it is quite boring;
● significant sludge that leads to an increased risk of running aground.

Catamarans, pluses:
● almost no tilting;
● large under-deck volumes;
● insignificant sludge;
● easy maneuvering in harbors;
● they move fast, with a slight tilt, and cope with the waves perfectly.

Catamarans, minuses:
● are charged with higher port taxes;
● the threat of overturning during sudden strong squalls.

Suitable length
A modern 34-foot yacht provides the crew (especially the one consisting of a few members) with space and amenities much better than a 12-meter yacht from the past.

The minimum size of a cruise yacht is explained by a different reason - how the yacht can maneuver in the sea. Therefore, the region where you are going to use the yacht is very important. If it’s the Baltic sea with its short waves, then 35-feet can be considered sufficient length for the yacht. In the Mediterranean the optimal length is 40 feet. As for the Atlantic, the best yacht for calm and safe swimming can be the one at least 42 feet long.
Anyway, the size of the yacht is directly related to its speed.

In conclusion, let's say that preparing a yacht for long voyage is not an easy task. However, as they say, where there's a will there's a way!

Get Help Worldwide Registration, Login & How It Works

Rich people focus on opportunities. Poor people focus on obstacles,” & “The speed of your success is limited only by your dedication and what you're willing to sacrifice” ― Nathan W. Morris

Just like someone wrote, many walk pass opportunities without recognizing them, and that was how I ignored several invitations to become a pioneer member of MMM Nigeria and I called it scam and said it was a networking business. As of now, the government has continued to discourage people from partaking in the scheme because it is a bubble and a ponzi scheme, but the bitter truth is that, those who started early enough in the previous year, 2016 have their financial freedom testimonies to share. To break jaws, MMM went on break in December and has proved critics wrong by a promised gallant return this January.


Are you selling MMM to me? No, I have taken time to study its operation and I noticed some parts of its structure that would make it not too sustainable. Parts of those lapses are too many people enjoy unnecessary benefits, ones money is tied down for too long (30 days) and loose regulations guiding participating members and their enforcement.

All of these have been corrected and improved on in ‘Get Help Worldwide’. Before you shrug and say, which ponzi scheme is this again?, I want to tell you emphatically and authoritatively that it is VERY real and working. I registered in December and wanted to be sure of what I was told too. I have friends who have been into this since last year October and they are making the promised MONEY!!! Bonus: Infact, once you register via the link I will drop, I will share with you the secret on how you can get paid about 3 times in a month with single unit money. For example, if you have just N50,000... You’ll get the percentage increase three times within 30 days. It is very real!

Now let me introduce you to Get Help Worldwide (GHW)
GHW is a community of people providing each other financial help on the principle of gratuitousness, reciprocity and benevolence. In GHW you don’t have to make contracts or pledge your property, there are no lenders and no debtors. Everything is very simple: One participant asks for help – another one helps.

The only thing that GHW demands from its participants is to be honest and kind to each other. You ask for financial help when you need it, you give financial help when you are able to do it.


How does it work?
After you register, you create the willingness to provide help and your order will be created, your money start growing immediately, it takes GHW about 20 – 25 days to match you with a participants when you will pay the person and get confirmed and when your order gets to 30 days you can create an order to get help and you will be matched within 1 hours of creating the order. Note: What this means is that your money will only be out of your hand for just 5 – 10 days.

For local currency (Naira), you’ll get 30% increase in 30days including the days you waited before you got matched.

For Bitcoin, you’ll get 50% increase including the days you waited to get matched.

Registration Bonus Ranges for Local Currencies are as Follows;
(1.) 4,000 Registration Bonus — if you have contributed from 15,000 to 149,000.
(2.) 10,000 Registration Bonus — if you have contributed from 150,000 to 649,000.
(3.) 20,000 Registration Bonus — if you have contributed from 650,000 and above of your Local Currency.

Like I said earlier, this is one flaw in MMM that GHW has corrected, there are NO Guiders/Sponsors in this Platform. This platform has been DESIGNED TO LAST FOREVER and therefore does not support the excess payout privileges of Guiders which drains the system.

The System ONLY Supports/Allows REPRESENTATIVES who are given extra 5%-10% of their Provide Help Offer in Addition to their 30% if they are participating in Local Currency or 50% if in Bitcoin in 30 days depending on how hardworking they are.

How to register

Via the link above, you'll create an account, but remember to use as your ‘Referral E-mail (Optional)’

Lest I forget, for the tip to make 3 times your money within 30 days, send me a mail via ‘’ with the subject ‘GHW Referred: 3 times turn’. Please include the name you registered with and your e-mail in the mail.
