Two lecturers of the University of Lagos (UNILAG), who were involved in a s*x-for-marks scandal that rocked the institution in 2019, Boniface Igbeneghu and Samuel Oladipo, have been dismissed by the institution.
The dismissed lecturers were caught on camera demanding s*x from an undercover reporter acting as an admission-seeking ‘student’ in a BBC report.
Igbeneghu was a lecturer in the Department of European Languages and Integration Studies, Faculty of Arts while Oladipo lectured at the Department of Economics, Faculty of Social Sciences. Their dismissal was contained in a circular released by the school authorities on Wednesday, June 2.
The statement read, “The Governing Council of the University of Lagos, at its meeting on Monday, May 31, 2021, approved the immediate dismissal of Dr. Boniface Igbeneghu of the Department of European Languages and Integration Studies, Faculty of Arts and Dr. Samuel Omoniyi Oladipo of the Department of Economics, Faculty of Social Sciences, from the services of the University.
Council, at its meeting, considered the Report and findings of the Senate Committee set up to investigate allegations of sexual harassment levelled against them in a British Broadcasting Corporation World Service Investigative Series titled AFRICA EYE (which centred on sexual harassment in tertiary institutions).”
