The wife of the governor of Ekiti state, Bisi Fayemi has revealed that she faced sexual harassment while she was a university student. She said this on Monday during the premiering of #SexForGrade, an hour-long documentary exposing randy lecturers in some universities in Nigeria and Ghana.
One of the lecturers exposed is Boniface Igbeneghu, former sub-dean of faculty of art at the University of Lagos (UNILAG), who sexually harassed Kiki Mordi, an undercover reporter who posed as a 17-year-old admission seeker in the institution.
Condemning this, Fayemi said it is troubling some of these lecturers have a culture of entitlement to the bodies of the girls.
Fayemi said “I cried because what these young women have experienced is the story of many of us who passed through higher institution in this country,”.
“I was educated here in Nigeria and I too was a victim of sexual harassment during my university days. I was luckier than these victims. It didn’t go that far but it was extremely unpleasant and of course, back in the days when all these things happened you can’t tell anyone because if you do even up till now people ask you to keep shut.
