UNILAG sacks lecturers exposed in BBC’s sex-for-grade investigation

UNILAG sacks lecturers exposed in BBC’s sex-for-grade investigation


Two lecturers idenitified as Boniface Igbeneghu and Samuel Omoniyi Oladipo caught soliciting sex from students in exchange have been dismissed by the University of Lagos (UNILAG) for grades in a 2019 investigation by the BBC.

Recall that the institution had earlier suspended Igbeneghu, who doubles as a pastor, and Oladipo following the investigation. It thereafter set up a panel to look into the allegations brought against them.

In a statement on Wednesday, UNILAG said the dismissal followed the BBC report and findings of its senate committee constituted to probe the matter.

According to the statement, the move is in line with section 18 of the University of Lagos Act 1967.

It added that the immediate sack of the lecturers was approved by the governing council of the varsity at its meeting which held on May 31.

“[The] council considered the report and findings of the senate committee set up to investigate allegations of sexual harassment levelled against them in a BBC World Service investigative series titled Africa Eye,” it read.

“The council consequently decided and approved that both Dr. Boniface Igbeneghu and Dr. Samuel Omoniyi Oladipo be dismissed from the services of the University for misconduct, with effect from Monday, May 31, 2021.”

The statement noted that the governing council has directed the university management to review its sexual harassment policy and institute effective strategies to prevent future occurrence.
