#SexForGrades – Dr Boniface says he won’t be pressured to speak anytime soon

A senior lecturer of the Faculty of Arts at the University Of Lagos, Dr Boniface Igbeneghu has stated he will not be speaking anytime soon on the video released by BBC on the allegations of sexual harassment levelled against him.

The associate pastor with the Foursquare Gospel Church, Boniface was exposed in an undercover BBC Africa documentary on ‘Sex for grades’ in West African universities. He was caught on tape making sexual advances and forcefully harassing a journalist who posed as a 17-year-old student seeking his assistance in gaining admission into the university.

When contacted by Punch, Igbeneghu said he would not be pressured to speak on the allegation.

 

“I work for the University of Lagos; if you want any reaction, talk to the university. Contact the information unit and they will tell you the correct position. If I talk, I will be running foul of the varsity law. Don’t put unnecessary pressure on me to say beyond what I have said,” he said

 

However, the University of Lagos and FourSquare Gospel Church have suspended him.
