The mother of the BBC Africa Eye investigative journalist, Kik Mordi who pioneered the ‘Sex For Grade’ documentary that exposed lecturers in the University of Lagos, Akoka (UNILAG) sent her a text on WhatsApp reading “I’m so glad and proud of you”, according to her twitter post.
It will be recall that a BBC documentary, BBC Africa Eye revealed a senior lecturer, Dr Boniface Igbeneghu, and former sub-dean in the Faculty of Art, University of Lagos, Akoka (UNILAG) made sensual advances towards an ‘assumed 17-year-old girl’ seeking admission in the prestigious university.
The ‘sex for grade’ undercover journalist presented herself as being a 17-year-old secondary school graduate. 17-year-old is below the legal age of consent both in Lagos State and in the country.
This means having a sexual relationship with a person of such age is classified as “child abuse” or better “child sexual abuse”.
The lecturer invited her to his office for a number of tutorials. As a safety measure, the decoy has a panic button with her that alerts her colleagues in case of any danger.
