Currently trending on social media is the BBC investigative documentary exposing the culture of sex-for-grades popular in most universities in Africa. The 13-minute documentary which targeted a university in Ghana and the prestigious University of Lagos, brought to light the ill practices.
Caught right in the middle of it all is UNILAG lecturer, and head pastor of a Foursquare Gospel Church in Lagos, identified as Boniface Igbeneghu who was caught on tape soliciting intimacy from an undercover journalist who posed as a 17-year-old minor seeking admission in the school.
In the video, Igbeneghu is seen on different occasions, making inappropriate remarks about the body of the lady who, unknown to him, has a hidden camera capturing everything. On her second visit, he is seen praying with her shortly before asking about her sex life.
Another bizarre reveal in the video which has left Nigerians outraged is seeing Igbeneghu proudly discussing a place called the “cold room” at the staff club where lecturers take their students to have sex with them in exchange for good grades.
Shortly after telling the undercover journalist about the place, he proceeds to lock his office door and switch off the light after which he then tries to kiss her in order to show her the “cold room experience.”
The video which has since gone viral on the internet has left many social media users shocked and outraged over the issue, most of whom have called for justice to be served as the said lecturer is alleged to have abused many students as well.
