Last year a male lecturer in one of the higher institutions in West Africa was alleged to have made immoral overtures to one of his female students in exchange for a change of her grades. The report went viral on social media which made the management of the institution set up a probe panel on the allegation. After a thorough investigation in which both parties were invited, the lecturer was summarily dismissed and brought to shame, having been found culpable of the allegation. There have also been stories in the local press, social media, e.t.c of lecturers harassing students and threatening them with failing grades if they refuse to sleep with them, for years. We have heard the cases of some who claimed to be men of God indulging in the act. The one of the top politicians can not be numbered.
