The controversial University of Lagos lecturer, Dr Boniface Igbeneghu, a former sub-dean of faculty of art has been the major topic of discussion in Nigeria after he was indicted in a 13-minute-video released by BBC, asking for sex from Kiki Mordi, who had posed as a 17-year-old admission seeker.
Following the allegation levelled against the Unilag lecturer, Nigerians have taken to their social media platforms, including the lecturer’s facebook account to share their views on the incident.
The news, however, did not go down well with the authorities of the institution, which decided to suspend the lecturer on Monday evening as further investigation is expected to be carried out.
The lecturer who had claimed to be a pastor was also suspended by Foursquare Gospel Church in Nigeria, for the alleged roles in the sexual harassment scandal.
According to information gathered, the embattled lecturer studied French at the University of Ibadan, Oyo State and graduated in 1989.
Dr Boniface got his masters from the University of Lagos in 1993, additional masters in Linguistics from the University of Ibadan in 2000.
He holds a PhD in French and comparative syntax from the University of Lagos and has been teaching French in the institution since 1995.
