#sexforgrades: Foursquare Gospel Church suspends Boniface Igbeneghu

The Foursquare Gospel Church in Nigeria has suspended its pastor, Boniface Igbeneghu, who is a senior lecturer at the University of Lagos (UNILAG).

The immediate suspension follows the video documentary released by BBC on Monday showing the Igbenegbu harassing an undercover reporter who posed as an admission seeker in the institution.
Igbeneghu, who is a head pastor of a Foursquare Gospel Church and former sub-dean of faculty of art at UNILAG, was exposed in a 13-minute video documentary released by the BBC Africa Eye on Monday.

In the video, Igbeneghu told Kiki Mordi, the undercover reporter who posed as a 17-year-old admission seeker, how some lecturers in the institution tossed female students for sex.

He had invited the teenager to his office for a number of tutorials, before delving into sexual conversations with her.

“Do you know that you are a very beautiful girl?” he asked.

“Do you know that I am a pastor and I’m in my fifties. What will shock you is that even at my age now, if I want a girl of your age – a 17-year-old, all I need is to sweet tongue her and put some money in her hand and I’ll get her.”

In the video, the lecturer went to the bathroom, upon his return, he locked the door, switched off the light and embraced the “admission seeker”.

“You are too stiff. I can call you to come any day. If you don’t come, you know you are gone,” he threatened.

In a swift reaction to the documentary, the Foursquare Church released a statement announcing the pastor has been asked to “step down from all ministerial assignments.”
