Sexual harassment: Caribbean University investigates ex- OAU lecturer





The authorities of St. George’s University, a private international institution in Grenada, West Indies, say they are investigating allegations of sexual misconduct against a Nigerian staff, Francis Fakoya.

Mr. Fakoya, a former lecturer at Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU) Ile-Ife, was earlier this week called out on sexual misconduct by a Facebook user, Funke Dezarn.

Although, Mr. Fakoya has since left OAU, his present employer SGU got wind of the allegation and decided to respond.

It released a statement via its Facebook page, promising to look into the issue and take appropriate action.

“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 sexual misconduct very seriously. In light of these allegations, a thorough investigation into this matter has been initiated and appropriate action will be taken,” the statements read.

Ms. Dezarn alleged that Mr. Fakoya was her lecturer in the Anatomy Department of the University, who failed many students, including her, that ‘refused his sexual advances.’

She added that America’s Oprah Winfreh’s explosive speech on January 7 at the Golden Globe Awards, which emphasised “Time Up” to sexual harassment against women, spurred her to call out her former lecturer.
