Speaking with the Inclusive Social Welfare and Empowerment Foundation, an NGO the victim reported the case to, the NGO said rather than Babalola attending to the undergraduate’s result issues, he raped her on August 16, 2023.

It was gathered that the NGO reported the case to the Gender Unit of the state police command and through the OC Gender, the State CP, Idowu Owohunwa, issued a warrant of arrest for Babalola through the State High Court and involved the Vice Chancellor, UNILAG.

The VC was given seven days to produce Babalola and when the VC invited the randy lecturer for questioning, the NGO said he admitted to committing the crime. The VC informed the police through the Chief Security Officer of the school and Babalola was arrested.
