Meet Boniface Igbeneghu, Unilag lecturer cum pastor caught sexually harassing a 17-year-old student in BBC’s ‘Sex for grades’ exposé

Dr. Boniface Osikwemhe Igbeneghu, was one of the four lecturers implicated in BBC’s ‘sex for grades’ exposé, an investigative piece exposing the deplorable case of sexual harassment students face in the hands of some unscrupulous lecturers in the University of Ghana and University of Lagos.

Dr. Boniface Igbeneghu, is an associate professor in the department of European languages and integration. He was also a former Sub Dean of the Faculty of Arts in the University of Lagos, Akoka.

Dr. Boniface Igbeneghu is also a Pastor in the Foursquare Gospel since, April, 2018 when he was inducted. He is 52 years old. He was born on 19th March, 1967. He has been married for 21 years to his wife, who is also a pastor in the Foursquare Gospel church.

According to church members Boniface is a staunch christian and a radical believer of the word of God. His ‘devotion’ to God was very well displayed when he urged an undercover journalist posing as a prospective applicant to give her life to Christ before he proceeded to sexually harass her.
