Dr. Boniface Igbeneghu, the UNILAG lecturer seen in a sex for grades documentary by the BBC, has broken silence.
The BBC documentary exposed Igbeneghu via a secret filming which showed him sexually harassing a female reporter posing as a student.
The female reporter wore secret cameras while communicating with him in his office. The videos recorded showed Igbeneghu making sexual gestures.
In the video, Igbeneghu said, “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”?
At the second meeting, he asked: “What age do you start knowing men. Be assured that your mother will not hear.”
Reacting to the backlash which he has received since the viral video was released, Igbeneghu said, “I work for the University of Lagos; if you want any reaction, talk to the university.”
“Contact the information unit and they will tell you the correct position.
“If I talk, I will be running foul of the varsity law. Don’t put unnecessary pressure on me to say beyond what I have said,” Igbeneghu added.
