- Social media has recently been buzzing with the report of a UNILAG lecturer and Foursquare church pastor, Dr Boniface Igbeneghu
- The lecturer had been exposed in a documentary carried out by BBC for soliciting for sexual favours from a lady posing to be a 17-year-old seeking admission
- Foursquare church has now reacted to these allegations against one of their pastors as they distance themselves from the scandal
A rot seems to have eaten deep into the Nigerian university system so much so that many ladies have become victims of randy lecturers who sexually abuse them or make their lives a living hell on campus if they refuse to be taken advantage of.
Just recently, the story of one UNILAG senior lecturer and pastor at Foursquare Gospel Church, Dr. Boniface Igbeneghu, caused serious buzz on social media after he was caught on tape soliciting intimacy from an undercover journalist who posed as a 17-year-old minor seeking admission in the school.
In the video clip making rounds on social media, the so-called pastor and senior lecturer at UNILAG was seen having series of inappropriate conversations with the supposed minor as he even told her at a point to put off the light and kiss him for a minute.
The lecturer also asked the lady about her sex life just after praying for her to give her life to Christ. On another occasion, he told her to move closer to him on a chair to kiss him, when she showed reluctance, he joked that she was stiff.
Obviously portraying the Foursquare Church in a bad light, the religious institution has now distanced itself from the scandal against one of their pastors.
In a statement shared on their Twitter page, the church explained that they do not condone such acts as they disassociated themselves from the conduct of Dr. Boniface.
