A lecturer with the Department Of African Languages at Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU), Professor Joseph Opefiyitimi has stated that the accusation raised by one of his students was blatant lie as she was even the one who requested him to have an affair with her.

Recall that Professor Joseph was accused of sexually abusing one of his students identified as Boliwatife Hannah when she went to meet him in his office for an academic discussion last month.

While briefing the panel of judges constituted by the school to investigate the matter, Professor Joseph stated that Hannah was his girlfriend even before she got admission to the university and he has been helping her both financially and academically for a long time.

He revealed that what happened in his office was consensual and he was surprised when the lady reported the matter to the school authority. He added that he was even planning to marry the victim before she reported him.

The professor begged the panel of judges to discontinue the petition because according to him, it was a plan staged by Hannah to escape marrying him.
