Sex for Grades - university lecturers harassing female students, pressuring them for sex in return for grades or admission - is a scandal that's gone on for decades.
You asked #BBCAfricaEye to investigate.
This is what we found.
To protect them, we designed masks to conceal their faces. Their voices have also been changed.
He’s a lecturer in French and a Pastor at the local Foursquare Gospel Church, close to the University of Lagos campus.
One young journalist went undercover, wearing a hidden camera & posing as “Kemi,” a 17yo school grad seeking admission to #Unilag.
Dr. Boniface invited “Kemi” to his office for a series of tutorials.
[Warning – some people might find this footage disturbing.]
Again, we sent an undercover journalist – “Zara” - to meet him. She posed as a student interested in a master’s degree & a work placement in his faculty.
But Dr. Butakor took it in a different direction. Having offered her a national service work placement in his faculty, he repeated pressed to become her "side guy" (in effect, a second boyfriend).
But Butakor pressed on, suggesting that a "side guy" might contribute to "Zara’s" career.
She told us about the power dynamics that shape these encounters between students and lecturers.
This time, he told “Kemi” about a secret room, directly above the senior staff club, where "lecturers take girls" to "smooch" and "touch" them.
An undercover journalist was invited there by a lecturer.
Inside, young women – we were told they were #UNILAG students celebrating a birthday – were dancing and drinking with older male staff.
When she emerged, Dr. Boniface laughed at her. He called her “stiff” and warned her again to be more obedient.
The University of Lagos sent us this statement:
Your identities remain hidden (but you know who you are ✊🏿).
