‘Sex for grades’ film creating more impact as second academic gets suspended from Lagos University

A second lecturer from the University of Lagos (Unilag) has been suspended, following the BBC Africa Eye investigation into sexual harassment at two top West African universities.

Dr Samuel Oladipo was secretly filmed propositioning an undercover reporter posing as a prospective student.

He becomes the fourth and final academic exposed in the documentary to be suspended.

On Monday, Unilag announced the suspension of Dr Boniface Igbeneghu, who also appeared in the documentary.

This announcement comes after the University of Ghana said two of its staff filmed propositioning reporters posing as students at the university, would be suspended.

Three of the lecturers, Dr Oladipo, Prof Ransford Gyampo and Dr Paul Kwame Butakor deny the allegations against them.

The investigation exposed sexual misconduct by multiple lecturers at the University of Lagos and the University of Ghana.

Both institutions have distanced themselves from the accusations, and said they’re opposed to sexual harassment.
