A UNILAG lecturer has been exposed by BBC Africa Eye after he was caught red-handed propositioning a student (an undercover reporter) for sex to make her pass.
BBC Africa Eye sent undercover journalists posing as students inside the University of Lagos and the University of Ghana.
Nigerian reporter, Kiki Mordi went undercover to UNILAG and succeeded in uncovering the sexual harassment that goes on in the institution.
The investigation resulted in a Unilag lecturer being exposed after he was caught in the act, and this is currently trending on Twitter.
According to BBC Africa Eye, their investigation saw female reporters “sexually harassed, propositioned and put under pressure by senior lecturers at the institutions – all the while wearing secret cameras.”
Dr Boniface Igbeneghu, a lecturer at the Faculty of Arts in Unilag was also exposed. He is a former sub-dean and the head pastor of the local Foursquare Gospel Church.
In the video, Dr Boniface is seen telling the BBC reporter who posed as a 17-year-old girl seeking admission that he is a pastor in his 50s but can get a beautiful girl like her who is 17 with just “sweet tongue” and “money”.
He invited her to his office a second time where he said a prayer with her. But it was no ordinary prayer. While praying, he is seen suggestively thrusting his hip as his already erect male member pressed against his trouser.
He then promised to help her with admission then asked her about her sex life.
“At what age did you start having sex,” he asked her.
He also told her that lecturers in the institution have a place where they take students to smooch and have sex with them. He said it’s called the “cold room” and female students who have sex with lecturers there get favoured by such lecturers because they’ve paid with their body. He went on to defend this practice.
During the reporter’s fourth visit to his office, Dr Boniface became really vulgar.
“Do you want to kiss me?” he asked. She tried to evade but he asked again, “Answer. Do you want to kiss me?”
He continued: “Do you want a kiss. If you want me to kiss you, switch off this light, lock the door, I’ll kiss you for a minute. That’s what they do in the ‘cold room’. ”
He then went into the bathroom. When he emerged, he said to the undercover reporter, “Time for cold room experience.” He then switched off the light and locked the door to his office before going to join the student on the couch and began forcing her to come close to him.
Dr Paul Kwame Butako, a lecturer at the University of Ghana’s College of Education was also one of those exposed. In a video, he is seen propositioning the undercover reporter for sex.
Dr Butako was caught on camera saying: “How many guys have told you you’re beautiful today?”
He added: “Let me be your side boy; side guy. Men have side chics. maybe you’ll be my side and I’ll also be your side. Because I’m married. My wife is not in the country though. My wife is out of the country.”
