A student of the Ogun state College of Health Technology has accused one of her lecturers of being responsible for her pregnancy after she slept with him to pass.
A lecturer identified as Dr Oluseyi Adu is facing a paternity mess after one of his students identified as Mosunmola accused him of being responsible for his pregnancy.
Mosunmola, a 28-year-old dental nursing student, claimed she had slept with Dr Adu just to pass his course.
Even though Dr Adu didn't deny being involved with her, he however said he is not the father of her unborn child.

Speaking on her dilemma with PUNCH, Mosunmola said:
“Dr Adu is the Oral Health Coordinator for the college. During my three years study, he taught me two courses each semester. I have never failed his course.
When I got to second semester, 300 level, he awarded me 38 in one of his courses. I went to his office in August 2016 to know why I failed the course. I needed to pass all my courses to be able to go for my board exam.
He asked me if I thought I could just come to the school and go like that. He said if I dated him, he would waive the course. He said he didn’t approach me in 100 level because another lecturer was interested in dating me.
The lecturer he mentioned told me in 100 level that it was either I paid him money or used my body to pass his course. Because I didn’t agree, I failed his course. I didn’t pass it until I got to 300 level.
I told Adu that I would date him, but I didn’t want to have any problem, and he assured me that there would be no regret.”

Mosunmola also revealed that Dr Adu made her write her board exams at the Head of Department's office. She claimed Dr Adu had given her his practical instruments and a laptop while they sat for the exam at the POGIL College of Health Technology, in Oke-Eri, Ijebu Ode, on August 21, 2016.
She claims that the lecturer had requested that she returned the instruments to a hotel where he had lodged earlier. She said:
“I was preparing to leave when he called me back that I would be sleeping over with him. I met him with another lecturer in my department. I observed that the lecturer also had a female student with him.
From the hotel, we went to different places before we finally lodged in another hotel along Ilese Road. While I was with Adu in a room, my other classmate passed the night with the second lecturer in another room."

According to her, she went for a pregnancy test after that encounter, only to discover that she was actually pregnant. She had contacted Dr Adu who gave her something to abort the pregnancy. She said:
“I refused to take the medicine because the prescription was not from a medical doctor. He came down to my place to persuade me to take it, but I still refused. He asked me what I wanted and I told him that I needed to change my accommodation because the pregnancy was a shameful thing for me. He told me not to worry, that he would handle it. After that, we had intercourse again. When he left that day, I could not find my phone again. By the time I got another phone and called him, he started acting funny. Sometimes, he would just laugh at me.”
Mosunmola then reported Dr Adu to different authorities in the school including the provost, but there was nothing they could do as he refused to budge. She then took the case to the Ogun state Ministry of Justice at Ijebu-Ode, where he was summoned.
One of the human rights lawyers identified as Kayode, reached an agreement with the lecturer, where he was made to pay her N5,000 and N7,000 for monthly feeding and ante-natal respectively.

Dr Adu reportedly stopped after paying for just two months, which made them go back to review the agreement. They agreed that he'll pay N50,000.
“I didn’t have any accommodation and I couldn’t buy any of the drugs the doctors prescribed for me. I told him I would only manage the N50,000. He left in annoyance. Since March, the lawyer didn’t call us back and Adu refused to pay the N5,000 he used to give me every month. I called the lawyer late March and asked him to help me get the N30,000, but the lawyer said I should not call him again.”
She tried to reach the lecturer while he had a class, leading to him assaulting her.
“I am now in my 38 weeks and anytime soon, I will have my child. I am an orphan and I don’t have any of my baby items ready. I am begging Nigerians to come to my rescue. I know I have made a mistake, but I need a second chance at life. I don’t have anywhere to go. It is a church that is accommodating me now.”

Dr Adu shared his own part of the story, saying:
"She was one of my students; but on a personal level, I never knew her until after they released her final results and she failed some courses, including mine.
Her HOD asked her to come and ask me if I could waive the course for her. She called me on the phone and came to see me in the office. That was my first contact with this lady. When she made her request, I met her HOD who said I should assist her. He said even if I did, she might not sit for the board exam because of the other courses she failed. So, I passed her.
When they sat for the board exam, I was surprised to see her and I asked her HOD why she wrote the exam when she had other courses she failed. He said people begged for her.
After the board exam, she came to thank me for the assistance and she asked to carry my bag and the instruments I used to conduct the exam. By the time she was leaving, I collected my bag from her, but I forgot my instruments with her.

That day, I went to hang out with my friend at the pool of a hotel where we lodged. Suddenly, I remembered my instruments and I called her to keep them well. But she said she could come to where I was and she came. After dropping the instruments, she didn’t leave as I expected and I decided not to bother her.
We were together at the hotel till evening. One thing led to the other. My brother, she slept in my room that night and we had intercourse. This was a girl I never dated or had any relationship with.
He claimed Mosunmola had tried to prank him with pregnancy a week after their encounter, and later told him that she was actually pregnant.
“I decided to travel down to Ijebu to see her. She brought out the test result and said I was responsible. I told her I used a condom and she couldn’t tell me that my condom burst. She said if I was afraid because I was married, I should not bother because the pregnancy actually belonged to her boyfriend and she merely wanted to see my reaction. I warned her and left.
The next time she called me, she said how would she take my pregnancy to her boyfriend, and that I should take responsibility for it. She said she would abort the pregnancy if I wanted her to, but I must rent a house for her in Ijebu Ode and then she described the kind of house she wanted.
When I heard that, I told her to do her worst, because it was obvious to me that she just wanted to blackmail me. She had been going round different places, telling people that I impregnated her. The question I ask is, did I rape her? Did I hypnotise her? You came to meet me where I was and we had fun, and now you are pregnant, and you are telling me I am responsible for a pregnancy I am denying?”

Dr Adu quickly reported himself to his wife afterwards to avoid the blackmail coming from Mosunmola.
“When she brought the list for the baby things, I asked her, ‘Why are you making me as if I am the father of your baby? Am I your husband? She suddenly flared up and said I should even go away that she didn’t want anything from me again. She cursed me and after that encounter, I decided to stop giving her anything.
“People impregnate people and nothing happens. Why is she treating me as if I had done something criminal? The worst that will happen now is for me to die. I am not a young man; if I die, people will cry and I will be done. But I also ask myself, what if the pregnancy is mine? My prayer now is for her to deliver safely and we will determine the paternity of the child.”
Na wa o!
