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.
The investigative journalism network explains the documentary is in response to allegations of sexual harassment by lecturers that have hovered over tertiary institutions.
After initial interviews, BBC Africa Eye sent undercover journalists posing as students inside the University of Lagos and the University of Ghana.
The lead reporter in the exposé, Kiki Mordi, said she was also a victim of sexual harassment when she was in school.
The BBC said its female reporters were “sexually harassed, propositioned and put under pressure by senior lecturers at the institutions” while they were wearing secret cameras.
The bulk of the excerpt released spent time in the University of Lagos and one of its lecturers alleged attempts to proposition a student seeking admission into the school.
A lecturer at the University’s College Of Education, Dr Paul Kwame Butakor, was also indicted in the investigative piece.
