But it was not clear why the letter dated April 19 2018 was not immediately released to her.

According to the Punch, Osagie was an MBA regular student of the OAU and was said to have gone into hiding since the sex-for-marks scandal broke out.

The letter  inviting Monica Osagie dated April 19 2018 from the Office of the Secretary, Post-Graduate College.

The letter with Ref. No: ADP 15/16/H/1424 entitled:

“Re: Investigative panel on alleged harassment of a female student: Detailed audio recording: Request for the presentation of Miss Osagie Monica Oselode”, was signed by the OAU Deputy Registrar and Post-Graduate College Secretary, Mrs. A.O. Fadeyibi.

The letter reads:

“I write at the instance of the Provost, Post-Graduate College to invite you to appear before the investigative panel on alleged harassment of a female student detailed in audio recording at its meeting which will come up at 10:00am on Tuesday April 24 2018.

“Please be informed that on arrival, you are required to call the Secretary to the panel to facilitate your appearance before the panel. Thank you.”

Akiyode-Afolabi had raised the alarm that Monica Osagie, “resorted to self help” through audio recording after two lecturers approached by her for intervention disappointed her.

According to her, several efforts made by her in reporting her predicament to two senior lecturers in the Faculty of Administration were unsuccessful as they both refused to intervene, adding that she therefore resorted to to self- help in documenting her evidence.
