Workers at UNIOSUN interfere with a workout and accuse a consultant of assault

Posted by

On Friday, employees of the Osun State University, UNIOSUN, interfered with a staff verification and audit exercise that the State government had planned.

The consultant was accused of molestation by the UNIOSUN staff.

This is the State-organized verification exercise’s second disruption, according to information obtained by 460play.

The state judiciary staff’s disruption of the meeting after the consultant was accused of verbal abuse was the first one.

Speaking on behalf of other staff members, Dr. Damilare Adekomi, Secretary of the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, UNIOSUN branch, claimed that the consultant, Sa’adat Bakrin-Ottun, called a Professor a bastard.

Adekomi added that Bakrin-Ottun verbally insulted and tormented university staff members during the exercise, degrading their position.

“Staff workers were verbally abused, tortured, and humiliated. That is not how it should be. Osun State University employees are people, and they deserve to be treated with respect as such.

What in the world kind of professor would the consultant refer to as a bastard? The peak of it is that. Even calling my student a bastard is inappropriate. What percentage more a profession? The university’s non-academic workers received humiliations this morning. The same continued right up until she left us.

“That is improper. Every person’s fundamental rights must to be safeguarded. ASUU UNIOSUN won’t tolerate that. Every member is present for the verification process since we respect our university. There is a staff member whose phone was held for hours before it was released when a person pleaded.

I have no idea why her phone was taken. The security guards here were pushing people with their weapons. This is incorrect. She came to a stop before leaving us. “She pulled away from here,” he said.

Bakrin-Ottun responded by rejecting the accusations and characterizing them as untrue.

“I am the victim of unfair criticism. Instead of responding when a university employee called me a bastard, I got in my car and drove away.

“To say that I am shocked at the purported altercation is an understatement. Since we arrived here at 9 am, there has been some issue, which surprises me because these are university employees. I arbitrated a dispute between a university employee and a security guard from the Osun Joint Task Force. Despite the phone being seized, I gave it to a union member.

“These folks have not been cooperating with the exercise since the morning, which has greatly affected us, and I was leaving with the Deputy VC at the time.

“One of them called me a bastard, which shocked me. I replied, “You called me a bastard? I went around and got in my car. All of those accusations are purely false; I was the one who was humiliated and defamed, but I don’t mind that, she remarked.

It took the Vice Chancellor of UNIOSUN, Professor Clement Adebooye’s intervention for the exercise to resume and for more employees to ultimately be validated.
