A few days ago, a medical doctor Funke Dezarn took to Facebook to call out her former lecturer, Dr. Francis Andy Fakoya who allegedly sexually harassed her while she was in OAU.
The school where Dr. Francis Fakoya now practices, St George’s University, Grenada has reacted to the reports. They revealed that they have launched full investigations into the matter and would be taking appropriate actions. They wrote;
St. George’s University (SGU) has been made aware of allegations against a member of its faculty, while previously employed by a university in Nigeria. At SGU, we take all allegations of sexual misconduct very seriously.
In light of these allegations, a thorough investigation into this matter has been initiated and appropriate action will be taken.

‘‘Oprah’s speech on Golden Globe tonight inspired me to post this.
“Dr.Med.Dr” Francis Andy Fakoya of Anatomy Department OAU Ife-Ife, Nigeria, you destroyed many young lives through your sexual harassments. As that was not enough, you used your power as a teacher to Medical Students, to fail any student that refused you.
Some of the student victims repeated the class, some like me were lucky to have just a resit, while some were thrown out of Medical school. I chose to say NO to you and you failed me in Anatomy 2 times (Part 2 and Part 3), which are the only failures I have on my transcript!!! I remember your words to me both times, a day before both exams, “Agree to sleep with me or you fail and resit the exam”.
Wherever you are tonight (St George’s University, Medical School, Caribbean Island), for all the lives you affected negatively, TIME’S UP!!!
