A lecturer at the Faculty of Art in the University of Lagos and senior pastor of a very popular Pentecostal Church, Dr. Boniface Igbeneghu has been captured on tape in sexually harassing a female student in BBC’s sex for grade undercover investigations.
Dr. Boniface prays with his would-be a victim before getting into the act.
According to the BBC, it decided to send an undercover journalist disguising as a student to meet Igbeneghu after a number of students have complained about him.
The BBC Reporter Kiki Mordi, who herself had been sexually harassed in the past pretended to be a 17-year-old student who wanted an admission at the University of Lagos.
According to her, she is using the avenue to speak for others and expose what happens behind closed doors at one of Nigeria’s most prestigious universities.
The lecturer claiming to be putting the journalist through what he termed the “cold room” experience explained that it is a regular practice at the University of Lagos’ staff club.
The undercover investigation was also carried out at the University of Ghana, where it exposed another lecturer, Dr. Paul Kwame Butakor.
