‘Sex for grades’: Undercover in West African universities. Academic institutions in West Africa have increasingly been facing allegations of sexual harassment by lecturers. This type of abuse is said to be endemic, but it’s almost never proven.

After gathering dozens of testimonies, BBC Africa Eye sent undercover journalists posing as students inside the University of Lagos and the University of Ghana.

Female reporters were sexually harassed, propositioned and put under pressure by senior lecturers at the institutions – all the while wearing secret cameras.

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

A lecturer will tell if you don’t if you don’t sleep with me, I will not give you mark. I am a human being

STUDENT’s Quote

To take a trivial example, which of us ever undertakes laborious physical exercise, except to obtain some advantage from it?
