Student Accuse Former Obafemi Awolowo University Lecturer Of S*xual Harassment
According to her, America’s Oprah Winfreh’s speech at the Golden Globe Awards on end to s*xual harassment against women, spurred her to call out her former lecturer.
She wrote: “Oprah’s speech on Golden Globe tonight inspired me to post this.
“Dr Francis Andy Fakoya of Anatomy Department OAU, Ile-Ife, Nigeria, you destroyed many young lives through your s*xual harassments.
“As that was not enough, you used your power as a teacher to Medical Students, to fail any student that refused you.
“Some of the student victims repeated the class, some like me were lucky to have just a resit, while some were thrown out of Medical school.
“I chose to say NO to you and you failed me in Anatomy 2 times (Part 2 and Part 3), which are the only failures I have on my transcript!!! I remember your words to me both times, a day before both exams,
“Agree to sleep with me or you fail and resit the exam”.
“Wherever you are tonight, for all the lives you affected negatively, TIME’S UP!!! #metoo #Goldenglobe #Timesup #Oprahthankyou.
“Pls share this post as many times as can until this message gets to him! He destroyed too many lives.’’
The school authority has, however, issued a statement in response to the sexual harassment allegation, promising thorough investigation into the case.
“St George’s University (SGU) has been made aware of allegations against a member of its faculty, while previously employed by a university in Nigeria.
“At SGU, we take all allegations of s*xual misconduct very seriously. In light of these allegations, a thorough investigation into this matter has been initiated and appropriate action will be taken,” the statement read.
