The University of Ghana seemed to have issued a notice warning students who dress provocatively.
A notice sighted by Africafeeds.com at the Department of Animal Biology and Conservation Science at the University of Ghana says students who dress provocatively will be turned away.
“Descent [sic] dressing is required of all students in this department. You could be turned away from academic facilities if you are not decently dressed,” a notice posted at the department read.
The notice at the department comes on the back of the sexual harassment documentary by the BBC which implicated two lecturers from the country’s premier university.
The university has subsequently interdicted the two lecturers who were captured by the film for allegedly harassing students sexually.
Prof. Ransford Gyampo of the Political Science Department and Dr Paul Kwame Butakor a lecturer at the Department of Teacher Education of the School of Education and Leadership all of the University of Ghana were implicated in the documentary.

Sexual harassment cases have been widely spoken about and discussed in Ghanaian media.
In some instances, women have been accused of attracting such harassment due to their dressings.
But activists say that is untenable, dismissing dressings of women as an open invitation for men to harass them.
YEN.com.gh earlier reported that the embattled businesswoman whose Twitter comments suggested she has been sexually harassed by the Vice Chancellor of the University of Ghana has clarified her stance.
In a statement shared on her Twitter handle, the CEO of Africa Integras, Andrea Pizziconi said she was misunderstood.
