HE CAME MORE INTO NATIONAL LIMELIGHT controversially when he allegedly championed several campaigns of social media campaign against Bola Ahmed Tinubu, a-two-time governor of Lagos State, now President-elect of Nigeria under the All-Progressives Congress party (APC) whom DAVID HUNDEYIN accused of been indicted for drugs in Chicago in the United States.

As it is believed that “nothing is hidden under the sun”, and “he that comes to equity should always come with clean hands”,  Hundeyin has been axed from Oxford University in the United Kingdom for misconduct bordering on misogynist, racketeering, and others.

According to Cherwell, a weekly student newspaper published entirely by students at Oxford university, Hundeyin alongside Onyeka Nwelue, a Nigerian author, were outed from the university after both ran a ‘fraudulent’ book launch together on Oxford University premises for Hundeyin’s most recent book.

“Onyeka Nwelue and David Hundeyin are no longer associated with the University of Cambridge. Their connections were terminated following an investigation into their conduct”. They added: “The James Currey Fellowship is not administered, awarded, or funded by the University of Cambridge,” a statement credited to the institution reads.

It was further exposed that Hundeyin and Nwelue exploited the university community by charging £20 for entry via the African Studies Centre of whose events are usually free.

Expressing shock and dismay at the impudence of the hosts to charge a fee for the book launch was one of the attendees at the event.

“I signed up to attend the event and was surprised I had to pay £20 to attend. Events run by the African Studies Centre are usually free as they are catering towards students,” an attendee said.

In addition to charging £20 for entry, copies of Hundeyin’s book were also on sale for a further £20 at the event.

Coinciding with the fraud-laced event the institution found Hundeyin and Nwelue guilty of, accusations of misogynism and sexism also headlined the misconduct that led to their dismissal.

A student was quoted as saying, “A key point of concern occurred when a question was asked by an attendee to Hundeyin concerning the issue of sexism and sexual harassment that African female journalists endure. Hundeyin replied with the implication that women who were of a fair complexion, tall and had long legs would not face hurdles to their career advancement in journalism.”
