Dr Olaniran Balogun of Tai Solarin University of Education, Ijagun, Ijebu-Ode has been suspended by the school management over the alleged sex-for-marks.

Few weeks ago, the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) has also declared the embattled lecturer wanted.

Until his suspension, Dr Balogun was the Head of the Department of Religious Studies at TASUED, and has been declared wanted by the anti-graft agency for abusing his office and demanding gratification from students.

However, the TASUED management said, he was suspended from office and given opportunity to clear himself of all allegations against him by the ICPC

In a statement by the Deputy Registrar
Media and Corporate Relations, Gbenga Omilola, which he made available to journalists on Sunday, said the Vice Chancellor, Prof. Oluwole Banjo, has approved the appointment of Dr Kayode Olusanya, as the new Head, Department of Religious Studies, to replace Balogun.

“Dr Balogun is currently under investigation for the alleged misdemeanor and has since been relieved of his position as the Head of Department, Religious Studies.

“He has also been placed on interdiction until he clears himself of the various allegations levelled against him by the ICPC.

“The university management would continue to do all within its powers to protect the good name and image the university has built for itself over the years.

“The university would therefore not condone any act of indiscipline and corrupt practice by any of its staff member. Dr Balogun is further advised to immediately honour the invitation of the ICPC to clear himself of the allegations against him.

Earlier, the ICPC had issued a warrant of arrest on the wanted lecturer.

According to a statement posted on its portal, the ICPC said Balogun has been declared wanted in connection with a suspected case of demand for gratification and abuse of office.

The statement read partly, “He has refused to honour several invitations extended to him through the authorities of Tai Solarin University of Education, Ijebu Ode, Ogun State.

“Accordingly, a warrant of arrest has been issued for his immediate arrest. He is advised to report himself to any of the ICPC state offices in either Lagos, Ibadan or the nearest police station.”
