The BBC released a video of its latest documentary in which Prof Gyampo and one other lecturer at the University of Ghana, Dr Paul Kwame Butakor, were caught allegedly in sex-for-grades scandals.
Speaking after the video popped up, Pastor Otabil lamented about how men who do not control their appetites create problems.
According to Otabil, such men who fail to control their appetites to tend to do all kinds of bad things.
"When men cannot control their appetite all sorts of evil are committed," Otabil wrote.
Otabil's post had many of his followers agreeing. While many of them prayed for the strength to withstand such appetite, others also pointed to the sex-for-grades video even though Otabil did not explicitly mention that in his statement.
