The footage from the expose revealed Boniface making sexual advances and sexual harassing an undercover reporter for the BBC who was posing as a student of University of Lagos.

The year-long investigation targeted the University of Lagos and University of Ghana after several complaints from ladies who attend the university on how the lecturers are making it hard for them to graduate.

The University of Lagos management said they will dismiss anyone involved in such acts while the University of Ghana said they will investigate and whoever is found culpable will be held liable.
