First Lady, Aisha Buhari, has stated that the issue of sexual harassment against women was not unique to universities.

Naija News reports that Dr Boniface Igbeneghu, who doubles as a head pastor of a Foursquare Gospel Church in Lagos, was exposed in a 13-minute video documentary released on Monday by the BBC Africa.

The suspended lecturer was caught on camera sexually harassing an undercover reporter who posed as an admission seeker in the institution.

In the 13-minutes secret filming by BBC Africa Eye, Dr Boniface revealed how his colleagues tossed and passed around UNILAG female students for sex.

The lecturer disclosed further how his colleagues patronised UNILAG Staff club ‘Cold room’ to commit series of atrocities on female students.

Speaking at the exclusive screening of the BBC Africa Eye ‘Sex for Grades’ documentary on Monday night in Lagos, Aisha Buhari said there was a need to address sexual harassment against students urgently.

The First Lady represented by Mrs Aisha Rimi, a lawyer, noted that sexual harassament against women has become prevalent in the society, including religious settings.

She said it was unacceptable as the nation’s educational system had suffered many setbacks that had hindered its development.

“This simply has to change. It is no longer enough to sweep allegations under the carpet or force victims to withdraw their allegations, victimise or stigmatise them,” she said.

Aisha Buhari hailed the BBC team for their hard work, bravery and tenacity to expose the ills facing students in the country’s tertiary institutions, NAN reports
