•Dr Boniface Igbeneghu

Authorities of the University of Lagos (UNILAG) have suspended a lecturer, Dr. Boniface Igbeneghu, over allegations of sexual assault.

The school’s Pro-Chancellor, Dr. Wale Babalakin, confirmed the development to Channels Television on Monday.

He also noted that the university council will investigate the matter as it does not condone such behaviour.

The suspension comes just hours after the release of a documentary filmed discretely by the BBC.

In the video, Igbeneghu was captured in a compromising manner with a reporter who had disguised as a 17-year-old, seeking admission.

He has also been suspended by the Foursquare Gospel Church where he is a part-time pastor.

The directive to suspend Dr Boniface was contained in a statement issued by National Secretary of the church, Rev. Ikechukwu Ugbaja.

While dissociating itself from alleged conduct of Dr. Boniface, the church also promise to investigate and punish him if found guilty.
