    Thank you, John! UNILAG should refrain from the all-hands-on-deck nonsense and get on with warning its randy perhaps perverted male lecturers to grow up. Instant dismissal would greet erring lecturers going forward.

    Rubbish. Zero tolerance when all of them are are guilty. It is by the grace of God that i survived all the direct and indirect harrassment from lecturers in Unilag. If it wasn’t sexual, it was about money. Terrible school.

    Ok Naija unis, it’s time for a rule that students and lecturers can’t meet in an office or any other place by themselves. This shouldn’t be hard. I went to a Naija uni and only stepped into a lecturer’s office one time. Even once was probably too many times. Students should interact with lecturers but clearly this epidemic needs serious attention and we can start by simply not allowing opportunity for indecent proposals or exposures. Unilag start a movement
