In a recent development, chairperson of University of Ghana’s Anti-Sexual Harassment Committee, Dr. Margaret Amoakohene has urged students and past students to come forward with evidence of sexual harassment by lecturers in order to launch an investigation into the said lecturer’s activities.

In a recent interview she said;

“Come forward if you have evidence to show that during your four years stay on the University of Ghana Campus this happened to you. The BBC documentary is like the first point that we received something to work with.

Dr. Amoakohene added;

The next thing is to invite people who think they have been victims in times past or they are currently being victimized to come forward. We are going to invite persons who have encountered these two lecturers or any others to come forward”
