NOT MAN ENOUGH

IF YOU ARE SO AFRAID OF YOUR WIFE OR FAMILY KNOWING OF YOUR EXTRA-MARITAL AFFAIR TO THE EXTENT THAT YOU SHEEPISHLY EXPOSE YOUR MANHOOD TO THE FULL GLARE OF LITERALLY THE ENTIRE WORLD, THEN YOU ARE NOT MAN ENOUGH IRRESPECTIVE OF YOUR ACADEMIC QUALIFICATIONS OR SOCIETAL STANDING.

REAL MEN KNOW WHEN TO FIGHT FOR THEIR LIVES.

REAL MEN KNOW WHEN TO FIGHT FOR THEIR LIVES.

Advise to men

What transpired here is not new under the sun. My only annoyance is that the Prof. fell so cheaply to this blackmail. He should have allowed Judith and his cohorts to call his wife and daughter as threatened rather than cowardly expose his manhood for the idiots. Irrespective of what the lecturer may have done, he does not deserve the kind of treatment meted out to him.

And this is an advise to all you men out there who are so afraid of your wives that you would willingly agree to cheap blackmails like this rather getting your family to come to your rescue. If you ever find yourself in this situation, please go violent and damn the consequences!!! I'm not a cultist like many others who are towing this same line of thinking but my personal dignity will never allow me to accept this inhumane treatment. A man dies but once!!! So men out there be gentle and nice but when pushed to the wall, please fight back with all you might even if it may cost you your life!!!

A MAN MUST BE RUGGED AND NOT MORALLY BANKRUPT!

Prof Otubu acted like a ‘jew man’.

He only acted as dull professor.Men indulge in extra marital affair everyday without getting into this mess.

He is a weakling.

He did not grow up well.

I have a masters degree in engineering.I am a successful telecom manager in lagos.I am married.I do also indulge in extra marital affair.I would rather die with the girl than face this issues.I would have shown the worst of violence in that confinement that will break loose the gates given my training as an intelligent and focused Bucaneer.I am proud to be a bucaneer forever!

I understand that there was no exchange of grade for sex.Thanks to prof>The lady only wished he did but he opted for payment option.

The lecturer in terms of professioalism was noble.

He needed just to be a tough man.Prof must wake up and be the NIgerian.

Bankole,Melaye of house of rep. wouldn’t take this from women they would rather die as exemplified in the last fracas in the house of rep.

Let them both leave the system!!

They failed.

I remain an intelligent Bucanner who a woman can not try in this manner.I will never support sex for grades exchange.

Thanks to Prof for not giving grades for sex.He needs to be tough in life.There is no gentle man in Nigeria.That was his fault!!!!!!!

The lecturer ought to have

The lecturer ought to have control over his libido.was the lecture under duress?
well the only thing i see that will hold him is that he is in the female student's room not his office.
it is hard to judge but i think the lady equally have a big case to answer.

Shame on Them all

I think the real shame lies in the mob mentality that is very common to Nigerian peoples. The idea of instant and public justice is so wrong and it has produxed some of the most tragic consequences. Thanks to God it did not get worse on this occassion but I would not have been surprised if they had killed him. If this instance is not punished such a tragedy will happen in the future. People may be set up like this and then killed. Whatever wrong the so called lecturer may have commited has a punishment for it in the University Stautes and under the laws of the land. What we witnessed was far from that and tpo that extent is criminal and unsupportable.

Thank you Emmanuel Osawe for

Thank you Emmanuel Osawe for shedding light into this bizarre and shameful episode. Your piece makes very interesting reading.Please do update us with the rest of the story.

Sex for grade saga

What transpired between Judith and the lecturer is not new in the Nigerian society. It happens in our offices, universities and even in industrial sector.The difference was that Judith was bold enough to expose the rots that goes on in the society but I think she went too far. I said this for her own sake. Now she has succeeded in exposing herself to the world,. Both the academic world and the larger society will henceforth reject her except of course the fish sellers at Oliha market who will gladly embrace her into their fold. Too bad.

Can you imagine this?

What kind of punishment will be adequate for this shameless professor.

SHAME ON HIM

I believe who fail to served God will served devil what a shame to the prof. what ever happen to him he cause it and this should be a lesson to other we shall try to fair God

This shameful act could never

This shameful act could never be stooped until when adequate measures are taking for separating the female schools from the men. We really wants our females to be highly educated at least for proper family care and addressing other vital issues especially related to women and children. But, what security would they have in this type situation?

May be that is why some consider the Boko (Western Education) as Haram (prohibited). They confused!

I know the case of a lecturer in a university 9 years ago, having a sex with a student "client" then another client also came for the same game and they fought forcing the first lady out of the lectures office naked. Unfortunately, When the school authority wanted to punish the guy ASSU chapter of the University protested, imagine!

So, Hon. National assembly Members should pass a bill to bring a stop to this havoc!

For this Lecturer, if he is really convicted judge him with his religious Holy Book. I don't know, stoned to death?

A case of Kidnapping/and a show of the wrotten nature of AAU

This message is directly to the Governnor of Edo State.In civilised societies the school should have made a statement to protect the image of the school.And even the commissioner of education should have also presented a detailed report to the public.But what do we have here?Silence upon silence.You may have to ask why?.it is simply becauses politicians also are guilty of the same offence.This is a landmark case for the police commissioner of Edo state.and i pray it is speedily resolved before the cultist in the school hijack the situation for molestation and civil unrest. For madam Judith-----The whole world have noted you and we look forward to see you in asylum depression due lack of Husband.

what a shame?

I finished from AAU some years ago and still doff my hat for my HOD then in accounting,MR IDIALU for his high sense of discipline,ability to impact constructive knowledge coupled with a sense of religious humour.God will always bless you sir.That was then.It is a different ball game in AAU now.The issue under discourse here has further discounted and depreciated the value of the certificates from AAU especially when the virus of cultism has long assumed a frightening dimension there.May God help us as most of you are welcomed to the already over-saturated employment market.AMEN

Only a FOOL will blame judith

Only a fool will blame judith. Those talking about judith going to jail in a civilised world are talking nonesense. Judith has done the right thing. she was supposed to be trained both in character and in learning at AAU, but the shameless prof has trained her otherwise. Please let judith be and I hope teh women folk will take her issues up if she is dismissed from the university on account of this event

prof. n student saga

Judith, my dear student, you went too far. You have appropriate quarters to present your case. imagine yourself been disgraced like that or your father? Prof Otubu can make a request like any other man but it depends on you either to accept or not. The way you went about it was too bad, you didn't even consider prof's wife, children and relations, and job. Legally, your action was beyond sexual harasment as you are claiming, there are tendencies of kidnapping and obtaining by force. Prof signed cheque under duress, voices of young men were heard underground forcing prof otunbu to comply. May God help Nigeria and the youths of these days.

Embarassing moment for a prof

I must agree the lecturer deserves all the humiliations as received.They are lots of them on campus and they need to be disgraced. On the other hand Judith does not have any reason whatsoever to go to the lecturer to know why she failed..she was looking for a quick way out so as her click of friends.She is a dullard and you can confirm it by checking her grades.To some extent this is extortion and kidnap. The Judiths on our campus please,read your books so that you don't find yourself in this kind of situation

sexual harassment in N igerian university

The Judiths and the otobos are the problems of the society today and these problems must continue as far as moral values are discarded for material wealth.all these are affecting our educational activities badly. shame on them.

for all who in wat ever way

for all who in wat ever way took side with the lecture,you are no better than he is i am very sure his been forcing girls to sleep with him so as to pass them or not give them a missing results

AN IDEAL SOCIETY

Can the two walk together unless they both agreed. Both the Lady and the Lecturer had successfully portrait what our university is all about. So, for any reasonable leader they need to pound on this. The lady had failed and he who is down fear not fall.D prof to me had lower his standard to the extent of going into a bugged house. It seems there some truth about Judith,cos if the man is not so loose he would had suggested better place. The worst of all. Check the who is who in Nigeria how bad they treat girls, even the ladies does not mind once something can fall into their lap. If this Prof can be crucified like this: WHAT OF ALHAJI SANNI YERIMA BAKURA (NIG SENATOR THAT MARRIED A MINOR!AND DENIED THAT HE ONLY SWORE & GUIDED BY KORAN) He is not guided by Nigeria constitution that he swore to uphold. What has anybody done on that. Only the poor suffer in Nigeria. Little sin, Bigger punishment. deadly and painful sin in Nigeria little or no penalty.

judith

its just so unfortnate that such circumstaces even take place. b4 we crucify the lecturer let start by asking the so called judith why she had to sleep with him the first time, it just shows clearly that se is a dull girl and not sure of her performances or grades in school for her to stoop low as to sleep with him. i am not saying what he did was the right thing but looking at it objectively he saw the oppotunity and he took it and since she was not sure she was capable of passing gave in to his luring. The two of them should be disciplened for their actions.

Re Video clips

What sort of message are we passing across here?
Ask the lady in question if she passed JAMB to be in that school in the first place and again,what exactly is she going to achieve from arranging this man in front of camera?
Not that 'am supporting the lecturer but if the man is her father doing the same thing to another mans daughter, how would she feel?
I live abroad (UK)and my feelings towards this madness was an arranged Kidnapping saga where some cult boys were being paid to harass and intimade a lecturer whom has already been sentenced by a kangaroo court.
This is not the best way to report an incident or case of harrsassment by a student in any civilised university community anywhere in the world.
And for you Judith, you dont look like someone who knows what she is doing because looking at the clips from the home video you look like an uncultured girl.
Sorry Judith, but the truth must be told!

I COULD SAY HE WAS KIDNAPPED....BY SHIT HEADS

How can a student lure her lecturer for marks, how did she get into AAU ? Am sure she cannot read and write. The lecturer could claim he was kidnapped and made to go thru did ordeal for money, humiliation and extortion. i am convinced he was kidnapped, that i know. judith and her boys should face the law, for this low life drama. They have shown that AAU,is breeding ground for cowboys and cow girls,also why did she not make the first video of her sex for marks. if she had passed would she have made any video. judith and her boys are just shit heads.....simple. The lecturer should have learnt his lesson by now.... d man no even get taste...lol.

Judith and the 'Naughty Professor'

This is horror film! It's realy unfortunate that this encounter has gone to the whole world and so much damage has been done to others directly and indirectly.There are so many of our lecturers like this Engr. Otobo, at Uniben, some young engineering lecturers do it as well in their offices. So bad for the Otobos and the Okosuns. But to think of it, most of us about 95% of married men still do and arrange the same thing. There is so much conspiracy in that film, because there must have been some consent initially until the lady and her co travellers set-up. Engr, how many machines have you designed? If you had devoted your mind to research and development, this would not have been your lot. Now the whole world have seen your untamed third leg. Too bad.

school should take immidiate action

The lecture in question is not even a doctor yet,he just defended his PhD last two months,
Otubu we know is such a dull lecturer that can not even defined electricity,
otubu deserved to be dismissed from the school and the stupid girl rusticated from the school

show of shame

is a shameful seen.

lect

These is in human treatment, we know what there are doing in our varsity is not good.

The system is culpable

There's no way the system that produced or employed Prof. Otubu can be exonerated. The entire system has been politicized such that the best of academic brains are still roaming the street because they have no godfather while the likes of Otubu could boast of employment prior to their graduation.
