Sex for Grades: undercover inside Nigerian and Ghanaian universities – BBC Africa Eye documentary


Universities in Nigeria and Ghana have been plagued by stories of sexual harassment by lecturers and professors for decades. Allegations include a wide array of abuses, from blackmailing students for sex in exchange for marks and admission to lewd comments and grooming.

After gathering dozens of testimonies, BBC Africa Eye sent undercover journalists posing as students inside the University of Lagos (UNILAG) and the University of Ghana to capture footage of the sexual harassment.

Reporter Kiki Mordi, who knows first-hand how devastating sexual harassment can be, reveals what happens behind the closed doors of some of West Africa’s most prestigious universities.

  1. The only problem I have with this is that they didn’t mentioned that it happened in High School also. I was sexual harassed in middle school and also high school while I was back home Togo.

  2. Ya fat Bitch that’s the only way some one would lay with his fat ugly ass,  $5000 or more.  Praying to the Lord while his penis is hard !!  SICK MOTHER FUUKKKKERRR

  3. I find my self thinking…. Perhaps the university administration is also involved in this pathetic sexual harrassment… These girls going undercover are heroes in my eyes… If they ever done this to my sister, I would kill the low life dogs…

  4. I knew countless of girl that were harassed in my high school and i also knew some teachers who were notoriously known to be the teachers in question. The big problem is because their actions, girl live in action because other students assume that the student are the getting them advances.

  5. AND THIS IS WHY WHEN WE TRIED TO STUDY IN WESTERN THEY PUT A BURDEN ON US JUST BECAUSE WE ARE FROM AFRICA AND I UNDERSTAND THEM .

  6. This is not new. It’s been going on for a long time and my God, it’s deplorable. It made me lose respect for the grades I see on paper. I had a course mate make an "A" in a paper she could not defend. I graduated 1985. Like other expressions of corruption in Nigeria, it got worse.

  7. this stuff is so uncomfortable for me to watch so i cant even imagine being in that situation. i was born in ghana (brought to the us when i was 7) and it’s just disgusting to see this happening. im glad these women are speaking up about it

    Topics: An abuse of power, How prevalent?, Sign of the Times

    page 3: ..Of course, molestation and harassment in the workplace are nothing new. Women—and sometimes men—were subject to such mistreatment even back in Bible times. (Genesis 39:7, 8; Ruth 2:8, 9, 15) But such misbehavior seems to be particularly prevalent today. Why so?

    For one thing, in recent years women have entered the job market in record numbers. More women are therefore exposed to situations in which such abuses can occur. However, of even greater significance is what the Bible prophesied long ago: “Remember this! There will be difficult times in the last days. Men will be selfish, greedy, boastful, and conceited; they will be insulting . . . ; they will be unkind, merciless, slanderers, violent, and fierce.” (2 Timothy 3:1-3, Today’s English Version) The prevalence of sexual harassment is just one dramatic proof that these words are being fulfilled today. Interestingly, an article in Men’s Health magazine notes that “the increase in sexual-harassment complaints has been accompanied by an astonishing decline in general civility. Bad manners are everywhere.”…..

    The prevalence of sexual harassment also reflects the “new morality,” which swept the world during the 1960’s.

    The Root Cause

    What is at the root of all these problems? How will they be eliminated? The Bible explains that the family unit is under attack by unseen wicked spirit creatures, Satan and his demons, who take pleasure in brutality, sexual exploitation, and perversion. (Genesis 6:1-6; Ephesians 6:12) When Jesus was on earth, children were attacked by these demons. One young boy suffered the torment of being thrown into convulsions and being thrown into a fire.​—Mark 9:20-22.

    Even centuries before Jesus was on earth, demons reveled in the torture and the burning to death of young children offered to hideous pagan gods, such as Baal, Chemosh, and Molech. (1 Kings 11:7; 2 Kings 3:26, 27; Psalm 106:37, 38; Jeremiah 19:5; 32:35) Therefore, today, in this world that is becoming more and more depraved, it should not be surprising that demons target children for suffering at the hands of willing human agents who inflict humiliation, pain, and death upon youngsters. Perpetrators of such monstrous crimes often feed their minds on pornography, which fuels their perversions.

    The pressure that the demons exert upon the human race has increased in our time, for the Bible calls this period of history “the last days” of the present wicked system of things. It foretold that these would be “critical times hard to deal with.” Now more than ever, the influence of the demons results in humans reflecting the depravity of these wicked spirit creatures. The Bible foretold that people in our day would be fierce, without self-​control, having no natural affection, without love of goodness.​—2 Timothy 3:1-5, 13.

    That well describes greedy people who produce films, records, magazines, and books that glorify adultery, drugs, suicide, murder, rape, incest, bondage, and torture. Through these and other means, the demons have promoted a culture that, like vile air, has polluted the minds and hearts of young and old alike, eroding family values and godly morality.

    The increase of child abduction, molestation, and killing is part of the sign of the last days. In addition, the Bible said that ‘men would be lovers of themselves, not open to any agreement, disloyal, betrayers.’ Hence nowadays the bonds of marriage are often broken soon after they are made. As divorces increase, so do parental kidnappings. And the battering and killing of present or former mates escalates, the vast majority of victims being women. Thus, we see a generation of children whose parents encourage them to run by neglecting and abusing them. Further, our time is marked by children who are “disobedient to parents,” who are “headstrong,” and who prefer to run with their peers rather than respect godly values.​—2 Timothy 3:2-4.

    The Tragedy Soon to End

    However, the influence of Satan and his demons is soon to end. (Revelation 12:12) The prophecy of Revelation 20:1-3 states that God will have Satan and his demons put out of the way. After that, God’s heavenly Kingdom, in the hands of Jesus Christ, will rule this earth in righteousness, administering justice and guaranteeing security for all. (Psalm 72:7, 8; Daniel 2:44; Matthew 6:9, 10) Gone will be the greedy commercial systems that oppress the poor and exploit human weakness for a profit, for “the world is passing away and so is its desire.” (1 John 2:17) All those who practice wickedness will be eliminated, as Proverbs 2:22 foretells: “The wicked . . . will be cut off from the very earth.”….

  9. i do think some of the bbc’s actions in fact border on entrapment.i want desperately for scummy professors like these to be rooted out from universities and face criminal charges and I worry that when the uncover journalists pursue meetings and return to the office of these professors after they make disgusting propositions and it can be seen as having complicity engaged with them. I dont know how the laws work in Nigeria and the conduct of these professors is already worthy of dismissal from the universities but i worry that they are jeopardizing the possibility for legal action with their undercover tactics.

  10. These women do it here in the US, you ever go into a business and ever wonder how this airhead bitch got the job???? Well there you have it, the cats out the bag! And these same women once they get into position always down play others as if they worked so hard to get where they are at & in reality they only opened they legs to get there! Don’t let me tell it! These women are whores just like the bitch selling Pussy on the corner, they are no better then them at the end of the day

  11. Beautiful ❤️ USA THEY SEX ABUSE TO IM SO SICK OF THIS WORLD ABUSING CHILDREN’S AND WOMAN IF Y’ALL STOP BEING AFRAID FIGHT WE MUST CONTINUE TO FIGHT 💯 ALL THE WOMAN AROUND THE WORLD WE SHOULD START A COMPLAINT JUSTICE FOR WOMAN JUSTICE FOR WOMAN

  12. This is just so sad! I pray for all my sisters in Africa and around the world pursuing an education even with this unfortunate UNFAIR risk!

  13. 13:05 Just wanted to say that the leg shaking thing is a phenomenon for some men when we are getting very aroused and want to bang. This happens to me also when I watch porn and when this leg shaking happens I need to go to masturbate. Just to give you females some deepening ideas what this predator is thinking.

  14. I would be friends with all of the victims and not judge them. Nobody deserves to have their consent taken away. This is human rights abuse. I welcome them to china. China please help more Nigerian girls get out of this corrupt, sexist, country. I hope that all of you are doing well now.

  15. Is this something new in societies where men have all the power? Obviously, the so-called College Administrators at all levels are involved in these crimes to protect their friends!! UGH!!
