The statement of the course representative reads;
I got o know Engineer David Aremu Oluwafemi after he was introduced to us in class as the lecturer for “Theory of Structure”, “Livestock Mechanization”, a combined course with Animal Production HND1. The first day he walked into the lecture room, he asked us to pick a course rep and my colleagues voted for me.
He told me that there are some things he wants the course rep o do for him, which includes refreshment after every lecture compulsorily and i spend N500 every week without the knowlege of my coursemates because he warned me not to disclose that information to anyone and added that he has spies amongst my coursemates so he would find out if i go against his instruction
He later said that every month, i must subscribe for his monthly data on his two lines (MTN and Airtel). I was later invited to his house and his reason for that is that if i don’t come to his house then i am not close to him lie how a course rep should and my attitude towards him would determine if my colleagues would pass or fail and any student who failed his course in time past failed because their course reps did not cooperate with him
I then asked what to do to ensure that all 18 all my classreps would no fail. Meanwhile prior to this time, i have heard rumors of his sexcapades
A now viral audio was shared by the victim who is heard trying to stop the lecturer from perpetrating the sexual act but the lecturer asks him o be silent, insisting as he breathed heavily, that whenever he engages in such act, he doesn’t speak
Another male student confirmed the allegations saying that the lecturer hates women but is sexually attracted to men and asked the class to contribute money for an infinix pro 4 worth N84,000 at the tme of the request but now N104k
The school management has now reacted to the reports and officially released an official statement to that effect.
