I didn’t even know I was crying until the video ended. This was my reality for 4 years with over 10 different lecturers. Thank you @bbcafrica

This is brilliant work.

#SexForGrades is a crime. It is an atrocious form of corruption and it must be stamped out of our society.

To those who are quick to defend Pastors even when the truth is Glaring, Dr Boniface was a Senior Pastor boasting of Harrasing 17 year old girls. The nigga even prayed for the girl to give her life to Christ before kicking off his evil. #SexForGrades

There are thousands of Dr Boniface across Nigerian Universities.
Sad thing is people still find ways to blame these girls when they try speaking up.
BBC should plant more undercover agents and expose these bastards, since the school authorities do nothing but exempt themselves.

When Dr. Boniface said I’ll report you to your mother and tell her you’re disobedient, I froze.
This is the MO of child molesters! They know that Nigerian adults are obsessed with hypocrisy and what people will say and will almost never believe their children when they speak up
