Monica Osagie, an ex-Post graduate student of the Obafemi Awolowo University, who exposed Professor Richard Akindele’s sexual assault against her leaking alleged audio conversation between them, an exposure which caused his sack, has spoken of her heartaches occasioned by the incident.
In an interview with Punch, Miss Osagie who said she has no regret about the disclosure, however, revealed that it has earned her broadside and somehow made her unemployable.
She said, “Oh yes! I received a lot of threats from many social media users. I suffered physical harassment at public places, especially in the banking halls. I also received a series of calls from strangers who would address me as ‘ashawo’ ‘home wrecker’ and ‘career destroyer.’ People accused me of destroying the career of the professor.”
Speaking further to the paper: “I have been threatened on so many occasions and I am yet to get a job since then. The last job interview I went for about three weeks ago, the guy asked if I was ‘the Monica Osagie’ and I said yes and the next thing he said was sorry ma, we don’t need a whistle-blower!”
