Sexual harassment in University and collages has been an act that happens behind closed doors and a topic that many shy away from.
Many campus students are victims of such barbaric acts which has been going on for the longest time.
Boniface Igbeneghu, a pastor and a lecturer at the University of Lagos was secretly filmed by BBC Africa eye as he asked inappropriate questions and requests toward a BBC journalist, who was posing as a prospective student aged 17.
The film, which has sparked widespread social media comment, explored alleged sexual harassment by members of staff.
The report also saw students, some with their identities hidden, making allegations about their own experiences with professors in different Universities
In the video,inside his locked office, the lecturer was filmed physically harassing the female and asking to kiss her.
He also appeared to threaten to tell her mother if she was “disobedient” towards him.
A number of other students in the film also made allegations of abuse against the lecturer. One former student of Dr Igbeneghu, whose identity was protected, claimed the experience has led her to attempt suicide several times.
The University of Lagos, in response, held an emergency meeting on Monday where Dr Igbeneghu was immediately suspended and barred from campus.
In a statement, the university said it was “highly embarrassed” by the allegations and pledged to do “all that is necessary” to investigate and combat the “menace” of harassment at the institution.
It also said it had closed down a staff function room known as the “cold room” which was identified in the film as a secretive site where students were allegedly taken.
