Sex-for-grades: UNILAG suspends another lecturer

University of Lagos, Akoka, has suspended another lecturer, Mr Samuel Oladipo, of Department of Economics, Faculty of Social Sciences, after he was also indicted in a sexual harassment documentary produced by British Broadcasting Corporation.

BBC had produced a documentary exposing four lecturers – two from UNILAG and two from University of Ghana, Legon – for allegedly harassing undercover reporters, who posed as students in need of help.

The release of the footage had drawn outrage from many Nigerians, who demanded that justice be served.

At an emergency management meeting on Monday, UNILAG suspended one of the lecturers featured in the documentary, Mr Boniface Igbeneghu, of Department of European Languages and Integrated Studies, Faculty of Arts.

Principal Assistant Registrar, Communication Unit, UNILAG, Mr Taiwo Oloyede, disclosed that the second lecturer in the documentary, Oladipupo, had also been suspended.

Meanwhile, there was panic on Tuesday over Igbeneghu’s health condition as he was rumoured to have been rushed to hospital late on Monday.

The embattled lecturer and pastor, who was also suspended by Foursquare Gospel Church, was alleged to have attempted suicide.

The university’s spokesperson, Oloyede, said she had yet to confirm the rumour and promised to call back but had yet to do so as of press time.
