Some students and former students in universities across Nigeria have named some of their lecturers involved in sex-for-grades scandals.
This is in the wake of the trending sex-for-grades video released by the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) on Monday.
A 13-minute clip was earlier released in the morning for a fuller version that lasted over 53 minutes was released in the evening.
The video documentary uncovered incidents of sexual assault in the University of Lagos (UNILAG) and the University of Ghana (UG).
BBC journalist, Kiki Mordi and her team posed as students to expose the sexual harassment that female students experience in the two universities.
The full length video identified four lecturers in various acts suggestive of sexual harassment. They include; Dr Boniface Igheneghu and Dr Samuel Oladipo both of UNILAG as well as Dr Paul Bukator and Professor Ransford Gyampo of UG.

Dr Oni Ojo – UNIBEN
Oni Ojo is of the Department of Physics at the University of Benin (UNIBEN). He had been allegedly involved in both sex and money for marks scandals as confirmed by many former students of the school.
A 2009 anonymous letter seen by this reporter addressed to the then Minister of Education, Sam Egwu listed Mr Ojo along with nine other UNIBEN lecturers allegedly involved in such an act.

Clarence Ataha – UNIBEN
Clarence Ataha is in the Educational Psychology and Curriculum Studies department at the Faculty of Education, UNIBEN. He is also a patron of the Nigerian Red Cross Society.

In my 200l in ANSU (Anambra state university), a lecturer asked my frd to leave his gal for him unless he don't want to pass his course. Local man thought it was a joke until the result came out. He got it F. They should come to ANSU and see it at full pace. #sexforgrade— Mr Cole (@Kellysome4real) October 7, 2019
