Also, “Since the matter came to our notice, the university has begun the process of identifying the characters involved in this apparent breach of its regulations, the code of conduct for the university community and the Anti-sexual Harassment policy, in full compliance with all applicable laws, rules, regulations and procedures of the University.
Further stating he said; "To this end, the University has set up a high-powered committee to investigate the allegation and summit its report within one week. Anyone found culpable will be dealt with decisively.
I wish to assure the general public that Obafemi Awolowo University has zero tolerance for sexual harassment."

Emphasizing "It is totally and morally reprehensible and the University will never condone such act by any staff or student"

Well this is a good note giving hope that the system is not all corrupt.
