The ‘BBC Africa Eye’s’ on Monday 7th October 2019 released an exclusive documentary which targeted some lecturers in West African universities who harass their students for sex in exchange for grades. After the collation of dozens of testimonies from several female students, BBC Africa Eye sent an undercover journalist, Kiki Mordi who disguised as a student and infiltrated the University of Lagos and the University of Ghana to uncover the truth.
The story of one UNILAG senior lecturer and surprisingly a pastor at Foursquare Gospel Church, Dr Boniface Igbeneghu, caused serious commotion on social media after he was clearly caught on tape requesting for intimacy from an undercover journalist who unknown to him posed as a 17-year-old minor seeking admission in the school.
Boniface Igheneghu who came under attack on social media as several social media users assembled in his facebook timeline using all sorts of language against him. After this, the lecturer of the University of Lagos vowed not to bow to the pressure of commenting on the situation as too much pressure was already put on him.
News going around which a close family friend has just confirmed is that the lecturer was admitted to the hospital after he drank rat poison (sniper) in an attempt to commit suicide. “Dr Boniface Ighenughu was found on the floor unconscious with whitish bubbles in his mouth, he was then rushed to Reddington Hospital immediately where he is receiving treatment” the family friend confirmed.
More updates will be posted when the news have been duly confirmed.
