The last 24 hours have been disturbing for the Nigerian educational system following a documentary by BBC on the alleged abuse of female students by lecturers in higher institutions.

Lecturers of two top universities in West Africa, the University of Lagos, Nigeria, and the University of Ghana were featured in the exposé masterminded by journalist, Kiki Mordi, and a few of her colleague.

The journalist and some of her colleagues, who have been kept anonymous for the sake of their security, disguised as undergraduates to the erring lecturers who couldn't pass another opportunity to exploit a 'vulnerable' student.

In the hour-long documentary, four lecturers, Dr Boniface Igbenughu and Dr Samuel Oladipo, of the University of Lagos and Prof. Ransford Gyampo and Dr Paul Kweme Butakor of the University of Ghana, were indicted.

The lecturers at different times and places, including their offices, were captured by secret cameras making sexual advances and even assaulting the undercover journalists who posed as undergraduates.

The University of Lagos has since condemned the behaviour by the lecturers and also suspended Dr Boniface who also doubles as a senior pastor at a Foursquare church, while an investigation into the matter continues.

The accused lecturers at the University of Ghana have been interdicted also pending the time the university administration concludes its investigation.
