A senior lecturer in the University of Lagos (UNILAG), Dr. Boniface Igbeneghu, who is also the head pastor of a Foursquare Gospel Church in Lagos, has been exposed in a 13-minute BBC SexForGrades documentary.
BBC Africa Eye, after interviewing several students who had been abused, sent undercover journalists posing as students to lecturers who were in the habit of harassing students.
The journalists were sent to the lecturers wearing hidden cameras and carrying a panic button to alert waiting colleagues in case the situation gets out of hand.
Igbeneghu, on his first meeting with one of the journalists who posed as a 17-year-old admission seeker, commented on her appearance.
He revealed that there was a location inside the UNILAG Staff club known as ‘cold room’ where lecturers take female students for sexual pleasures.
“Do you know that you are a very beautiful girl,” Igbeneghu asked her.
“Do you know that I am a pastor and I’m in my fifties. What will shock you is that even at my age now, if I want a girl of your age – a 17-year-old, all I need is to sweet tongue her and put some money in her hand and I’ll get her.”
