The Management, University of Lagos (UNILAG), has shut down the ‘Cold Room’, where lecturers of the institution allegedly harass students sexually.
This was made known by the Principal Assistant Registrar (Communication Unit) of the academic institution, Mr. Taiwo Oloyede.
“The University of Lagos Management today suspended Dr. Boniface Igbeneghu of the Department of European Languages and Integrated Studies, Faculty of Arts who was caught in a sting operation by the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) titled ‘Sex for Grades’,” the statement read.
Speaking on the closure of the ‘Cold Room’, the University also assures members of the public that any other lecturer mentioned in the full version of the operation will also be suspended to ensure a proper investigation is carried out.
“In addition to this, the University Management has ordered the shutdown of the Staff Club ‘Cold Room’ mentioned in the documentary for further investigation. The so-called ‘Cold Room’ is a Functions Room that may have been abused because this is a deviation from the purpose for which it was created (meetings, seminars, events, etc.).”
ORIENTAL TIMES recalls that Igbeneghu was yesterday also suspended by the Foursquare Church where he is a part-time pastor.
The Church in a statement obtained by ORIENTAL TIMES dissociated itself from the alleged immoral conduct of the clergyman, promising to take appropriate measures as soon as the ongoing investigation is concluded.
