The University of Lagos (UNILAG), has suspended another lecturer, Dr. Samuel Oladipo, who was also exposed in the #SexForGrades undercover video released by BBC African Eye.
Dr. Oladipo, a lecturer in the Department of Economics in the institution, was suspended on Tuesday by the university management.
He was caught on camera in the full video released on Monday evening, demanding for sex in exchange for admission from an undercover BBC reporter in a full documentary report.
Professor Oluwatoyin Ogundipe, UNILAG Vice-Chancellor, confirmed Oladapo’s suspension by the university management to The Sun.
The VC said that “Dr Oladipo was suspended on Tuesday for the same offence with Dr Igbenehu,” adding that “he will face a panel.”
Newsbreak.ng had reported earlier on Monday, that Boniface Igbeneghu, a pastor and senior lecturer in the Department of European Languages and Integrated Studies, Faculty or Arts, who was the first lecturer in the institution to be exposed by an initial 13-minute undercover video, demanding sex from a BBC reporter, who posed as 17-year-old admission seeker, was suspended.
Also, the Chairman of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), UNILAG branch, Dr. Dele Ashiru, described the sex-for-admission scandal involving two of his members as unfortunate and tragic.
He stressed that the allegations against gbenehu and Oladipo were sex-for-admission and not sex-for-grades, urging members to refrain from any act that could tarnish the image of the university.
He said, ”The entire episode is unfortunate and tragic because lecturers are supposed to be loco parentis to the students. My appeal to our colleagues is to refrain from a negative act that can tarnish the image of the university and themselves.”
