- A student of UNILAG who knew Igbeneghu, the lecturer caught on video over sexual harassment, said she was shocked
- The student who spoke under anonymity Igbeneghu always poses as a godly and very jovial person
- According to her, it would have been difficult for anyone to believe the allegation if there was no video evidence
Dr Boniface Igbeneghu, a lecturer of the University of Lagos (UNILAG), is one of the lecturers exposed over sexual harassment in a documentary video published by BBC Africa.
Igbeneghu, apart from being a lecturer, is also a pastor of Foursquare Gospel Church.
In the video, the senior lecturer and pastor is seen sexually harassing an undercover journalist who posed as a 17-year-old seeking admission in the university.
He also indicted his colleagues mentioning that there is a cold room in the institution's staff club where female students are sexually harassed.
Following the release of the video, the management of the university has suspended Igbeneghu.
Speaking to The Cable on the development, a final year student of the faculty who asked not to be named said she and other students who knew the lecturer found the documentary shocking.
According to her, Igbeneghu always poses as a godly and very jovial person.
She added that, given Igbeneghu's personality, it would have been difficult for anyone to believe the allegation if there was no video proof.
“When I saw the premiere, I thought it would be lecturers from Philosophy, English but for him, shocking is an understatement,” she said.
She added that the randy lecturer was popular among students, adding that one of her friends who had graduated from the university and also attended Foursquare fellowship on campus used to speak highly of him.
The student said Igbeneghu is always smiling and replies every greeting from students with ‘God will bless you’.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that the management of UNILAG suspended another lecturer, Dr Samuel Oladipo, for his alleged involvement in the sexual harassment scandal in the school.
Oladipo who was suspended on Tuesday, October 8, is a lecturer in the Department of Economics.
