The University of Lagos, Akoka, has suspended another lecturer, Dr Samuel Oladipo, of the Department of Economics, Faculty of Social Sciences, after he was also indicted in a sexual harassment documentary produced by the British Broadcasting Corporation.
The BBC had produced a documentary exposing four lecturers – two from UNILAG and two from the University of Ghana, Legon – for allegedly harassing undercover reporters, who posed as students in need of help.
The release of the footage had drawn outrage from many Nigerians, who demanded that justice be served.
At an emergency management meeting on Monday, UNILAG suspended one of the lecturers featured in the documentary, Dr Boniface Igbeneghu, of the Department of European Languages and Integrated Studies, Faculty of Arts.
The Principal Assistant Registrar, Communication Unit, UNILAG, Taiwo Oloyede, disclosed yesterday that the second lecturer in the documentary, Oladipupo, had also been suspended.
