The University of Lagos has suspended a lecturer who was caught on film propositioning and sexually harassing an undercover BBC reporter.

Boniface Igbeneghu, also a pastor, has been condemned by his church.

He was one of several academics secretly filmed as part of a year-long investigation by BBC Africa Eye.

The film, which has sparked widespread social media comment, explored alleged sexual harassment by members of staff at two top West African universities.

The report also saw students, some with their identities hidden, making allegations about their own experiences with professors.

Dr Igbeneghu has made no comment.
