University Of Benin Lecturer Tony Asekhuno Accused of “Sex for Grades” Scandal

May 27, 2024 0 Posted By Kaptain Kush

Dr. Tony Asekhuno, a lecturer at the University of Benin (UNIBEN), has been accused of sexual harassment and misconduct by past and present students of the institution. The allegations have sparked widespread outrage and calls for immediate action against the lecturer.

The accusations against Asekhuno came to light after a series of tweets and posts on social media platforms, where students shared their experiences and called for justice. One particularly distressing account involved a female student who claimed that Asekhuno failed her in his logic class deliberately three times until he raped her in his office during her final year.

The University of Benin has yet to release an official statement regarding the allegations, but the hashtag #TonyAsekhuno has been trending on social media, with many users demanding that the university take swift and decisive action against the accused lecturer.

This scandal comes in the wake of a broader conversation about sexual harassment and misconduct in educational institutions across West Africa. A 2019 BBC Africa Eye investigation exposed sexual misconduct by multiple university lecturers at two top West African universities, leading to the suspension of two lecturers at the University of Ghana and a professor at the University of Lagos.

The allegations against Asekhuno have reignited the debate about the prevalence of “sex for grades” in educational institutions and the need for stricter measures to protect students from such abuses of power.
