In what appears to be saying this serves him right, following the Sex for Grades documentary by BBC Africa Eye, some Ghanaians have taken to Twitter to mock Ransford Gyampo, a Ghanaian professor busted in the exposé.

Professor Gyampo, who is a lecturer at the Political Science department and the Head of the European Studies at the University of Ghana, was captured in the investigative piece by BBC Africa Eye.

YEN.com.gh earlier reported Professor Ransford Gyampo was also videoed requesting to marry one of the undercover journalists who had posed as a student to seek academic favours from him

Professor Gyampo had earlier persuaded the reporter to meet him at a mall where he was caught on camera making ''numerous inappropriate demands.''

Following the exposé, some Ghanaians are mopping social media streets with the Ghanaian lecturer, who is also the Deputy Electoral Commissioner of Ghana.

Many have shared funny photos and skits to mock the Ghanaian professor.
