A Court of Appeal sitting in Akure, the Ondo State capital, on Friday struck out the appeal filed by a former lecturer of Obafemi Awolowo University,  Ile-Ife, Osun State, Richard Akindele, who was convicted for demanding sex for marks  from one of his students  Monica Osagie.

In 2018, Akindele was sentenced to six years’ imprisonment by a Federal High Court sitting in Osogbo, Osun State, having been found guilty of the offence.

The management of the university had fired the randy lecturer following the offence.

He had however served and completed his jail term and was released from prison in 2020.

He however challenged his conviction on the grounds that the High Court lacked the jurisdiction to try him.

But the appellate court in its verdict dismissed Akindele’s appeal and upheld the judgment of the High Court
