The University of Lagos (UNILAG) has suspended another lecturer for demanding sex from students in exchange for grades.

The purge comes in the face of the storm created by the BBC Africa Eye #SexForGrades documentary published on Monday.

The 13-minute documentary, which captured UNILAG and the University of Ghana, was centred on exposing sexual harassment of students by lecturers.

A senior lecturer in the Faculty of Arts, UNILAG, Dr Boniface Igbeneghu, was filmed sexually harassing Kiki Mordi, an undercover journalist who posed as a 17-year-old admission seeker in the institution.

Igbeneghu was suspended indefinitely on Monday.

UNILAG Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Oluwatoyin Ogundipe, however, announced on Tuesday that Dr. Samuel Oladipo of the Department of Economics had also been suspended.

Oladipo was featured in the second part of the documentary demanding sex in exchange for admission from an undercover BBC reporter in his office.

The vice-chancellor said Oladipo would face a panel.

Reports say that Oladipo had six research works and one project to his credit.

His recent article, which he co-authored with C. Ogboni, titled: “Stock market and economic growth: The Nigerian experience” was published in August.
