On Monday morning, I left my apartment
dressed in Versace three quarter sleeve blue
blazer on a yellow sleeveless pencil dress and
a matching Gucci ankle strap heels and a
Marc Jacobs baguette bag. I left in my car for
the School Senate building.
I report to the VC office. The VC’s Secretary
asked if I was given an appointment and I
said yes. She looked me from head to toe.
“Are you the student the VC expecting”
“I’m sorry o, its just that you don’t look like
I just smiled. She doesn’t need to tell me. I
know I slay.
I waited while she called him on intercom.
She told me to go in and I entered
On a good day, I would have been scared to
enter into the VC’s office but that was before
I met Admiral Alawode. I’ve met so many
powerful people in this country through him
and we’ve dined and wined together.
“Good morning sir”
“Anike from Admiral Alawode”
“Yes sir” I bowed.
“What can I offer you?”
The VC offered me a drink. I smiled
I’m OK sir
Relax, Admiral is my boss” He called his
secretary, who asked me what I want. I just
said malt and she served it.
I was sipping my malt when a man walked
him and he informed the VC that the
Panelists are ready.
“Sir, I’m I facing panel?”
“Yes, do you have the evidence with you?”
“Yes sir, it’s on my phone”
“Now let’s go”
We left and entered a conference room close
to his office.
The panel consisted of just 10 people,6men
and 4 women. I only recognized few of them.
The Dean of student affairs, Dean of Faculty
of Science (my faculty) My HOD and Doctor
Williams the culprit who was on suit. Each as
a table mic in front of them.
It was like a court setting. We were both
called to take the stand. Each stand facing
“Name please?” one of the panelist asked.
I was asked to tell what transpired between
both of us. I said my part of the story.
He was asked if my allegations was true or
false and he said it was false.
“Any evidence Miss Adams?”
“I have an audio recording on my phone” I
replied and handed my phone over.
My phone was connected to a sound system
and the recording was played.
Doc:Anike, I’ve been waiting for you in
cascade hotel for the past one hour now.
Me:Sir, I told you I can’t do it.I can’t sleep
Doc:Come and tell me that to my face
Me:I will never sleep my way to get grades,
Never. I did not do it in lower levels, not now
that I’m in final year.
Doc:What are you feeling like, I even try to
consider you because you are tush to bring
you to an hotel. Do you know how many
students have sexed in the office on my
Me:That’s them not me.
Doc:Why are you feeling so special, did you
have gold on yours.
Me:Yes, it’s gold.
Doc:Both those small small boys can dig it
right. I give you 30mins to meet me here now
or else consider yourself having an extra
year. Cos I’ll make sure you have an F in
Me: You know what do your worse sir.
And the recording stopped
“Doctor Williams, do you have anything to
say?” The panelist asked after the voice
“That recording is not real sir, it was
“Will you shut up, do you know who she is?
You have bitten more than you can chew and
this time around, you will pay for all your
past S£x escapades with the female students”
in this school
Mr VC sir, we have verified the recording.
“Hold on a sec”He made a phone call with
one of the phones on his table.
Then Admiral Alawode’s PA came into the
I was like what is going on here and what the
hell is he doing in this room. I left him in
Abuja the previous day.
He handed an envelope to the VC and the VC
pass it to one of the panelist.
They read the first one. It was an evidence
from the telecommunications and it gave the
details of our conversation on Saturday.
“The details here with me states that you
called Anime Adams number 16 times. She
later picked the call around 6pm on Saturday.
True or false?”
“True, but I wasn’t to discuss project with
her” Doctor Williams replied.
“You call your project student 16times, that
project must be an emergency!” one of the
female panelist said.
(Trust women nau, they are good at stepping
on control P. She already took it personal)
“She has not submitted her project topics” he
Has the other 3 project students submitted?”
“Yes they have”
“When did a submit” The dean of student
“This morning” he replied.
“Smart move” he smiled and adjusted his
“Where were you on Saturday, 5pm to be
“I was in my house”
“Here is the ledger of cascade hotel, it says
you checked into the hotel at 5pm on
“Yes, I forgot I was there to relax”
“And in your phone conversation with Miss
Anike Adams, you specifically told her you
are in Cascade hotel waiting for her”
“I called to…..”
The other female panelist hit her palm hard
on the table , thereby interrupting him.
“Do you realize the VC is on sit and you are
still standing there wasting our precious time
here.” She fired at him.
“You still dare to deny, you good for nothing
Jesus Christ! That was Admiral’s voice, he
was on phone all along.
All the panelist turned to face the VC, the
voice came from the phone on the table. It
was so audible since the table was mic.
