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

According to a report in the Punch, Akindele was jailed in 2018 by a Federal High Court, Osogbo, Osun State, having been found guilty of the offence.

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