The University of Lagos, UNILAG has suspended Dr. Boniface Igbeneghu, its lecturer who was involved in a sex-for-marks scandal.
Earlier today, a viral video of the lecturer produced by BBC Africa in an undercover move, surfaced on the internet.
The lecturer was set up by the media house journalist, Kiki Mordi, who disguised as a 17-year-old admission seeker.
The vice-chancellor of the institution, Oluwatoyin Ogundipe, made the confirmation in an interview on Monday afternoon, Premium Times reports.
Mr Ogundipe said the lecturer has been suspended indefinitely.
”A panel will be set up to investigate the issue,” he said.
The investigation is part of a broader one that uncovers the sex for grade crises in universities in Nigeria and Ghana.
The UNILAG lecturer, Boniface Igbeneghu, is a former sub-dean of Faculty of Art and head pastor of local Foursquare Gospel Church.
Mr Igbeneghu invited the ‘admission seeker’ to his office for ‘tutorials’ and at their first meeting asked: “how old are you?”.
After responding, the lecturer commented on her appearance.
“Don’t you know you are a beautiful girl? Do you know I am a pastor and I am in my 50s but if I want a girl of 17 years, all I need is a sweet tongue and put some money,” he said.
