Following an in-depth investigation carried out by BBC Africa Eye on sex-for-marks lecturers at various universities in West Africa, ex-students of the University of Benin(UNIBEN) are calling on BBC into look into the institution as well.
In the mind-blowing investigation which was released on Monday, a University of Lagos(UNILAG) senior lecturer at the Faculty of Arts, also the head pastor of a Foursquare Gospel Church in Lagos, Dr. Boniface Igbeneghu, was one of the lecturers exposed.
For the past year, BBC Africa Eye has been secretly investigating sexual harassment by lecturers at West Africa’s most prestigious universities.

This has prompted former and some present students of UNIBEN to call for investigation into their own school.
See some reactions
If i talk about the time a common university administrative staff in Uniben asked i sleep with him so he can make my clearance process faster they’ll say I’m lying. Uncle even threatened my result. School I didn’t even rate. Carry my whole four years and eat it sir. I don’t want.

Wish they could have done that documentary in uniben too. Some Uniben lecturers are habitual perpetrators of #Sexforgrades

UNIBEN had 30,000+1 students in my time (that is what the university admin always said) and almost everyone I knew in school knew another girl who was sexually harassed. We knew the usual lecturer suspects and they were protected. I paid a price for discussing it in class.

My friend is currently having a recurrent C.O. in a particular course because she refused #SexForGrades in University of Benin (Uniben).
