The University of Lagos has suspended one of its senior lecturers, Boniface Igbeneghu, who was caught on video soliciting sex from an “admission seeker.”
The vice-chancellor of the institution, Oluwatoyin Ogundipe, confirmed this to the press on Monday after the lecturer was exposed in a video by BBC Africa where an undercover journalist, Kiki Mordi, disguised as a 17-year-old admission seeker.
Mr Ogundipe said the lecturer has been suspended indefinitely.
”A panel will be set up to investigate the issue,” he said.
The University also announced the shut down of the ‘Cold Room’, where the disgraced lecturer, who is also a pastor, said in the video that lecturers sexually harass students.
Mr Igbeneghu, in the BBC undercover documentary, described the “cold room” as a place at the staff club of the university. where lecturers meet to “touch students breast.”
Meanwhile, the Foursquare Gospel Church, has also asked Igbeneghu to step down from all “ministerial assignments”.
The church said on Monday that it will take appropriate measure as soon as the ongoing investigation is concluded.
