Boniface Igbeneghu, UNILAG Lecturer

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.

No One Should Weep For Hushpuppi, There Are Many Hushpuppis Still Around — Police PRO Mba

Published

The Public Relations Officer, Nigeria Police Force, DCP Frank Mba, says there are many “baby and bigger” criminals around who operate like alleged international internet fraudster, Ramon Abbas, aka Hushpuppi.

He said no one should weep for Hushpuppi while advising parents to query any suspicious show of wealth by their wards.

He also warned traditional rulers to desist from the act of giving titles to young men and women with questionable sources of income.

37-year-old Abbas was arrested last month in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, by the Dubai Police and later handed over to the Federal Bureau of Investigation in the United States.

The Force spokesperson, who spoke Thursday on a radio programme, ‘Real Talk With Kike’, said Hushpuppi is just one of the many cyber crooks and cyber rogues out there.

Speaking about the arrest of Abbas in June, Mba said, “The feat by the Dubai Police was not achieved by them alone but an international collaboration that ran across multiple security agencies with Interpol playing a very big role, FBI playing a big role and of course, the Dubai Police taking the lead because they are the national police, policing the country where Hushpuppi was based and where most of his activities emanated from.”

Asked by the host, Kikelomo Atanda-Owo, whether the NPF has the capacity to arrest criminals of Hushpuppi’s category, he said “time will tell” but pointed out that a lot of progress was being made by the Interpol unit located at the Force Headquarters in Abuja manned by Police operatives.

Hushpuppi, said to have duped about 1,926,400 victims, is facing charges of conspiracy to commit money laundering, among others in the US.

His lawyer, Gal Pissetzky of Pissetzky & Berliner, said he is planning a “vigorous defence” to free him when the US court handling the matter resume hearing on Monday.

Mba added, “Hushpuppi will enjoy the privileges of being tried in a free world and in a liberal democracy. I also have no doubt about his capacity to pay for the best of lawyers. He’s a billionaire crook. He should have the capacity to pay.”
