At last, Sex For Mark Pastor Speaks Up

Published

on

Dr. Boniface Igbeneghu, the Unilag lecturer and Foursquare Gospel Church pastor who was implicated in a sex for mark scandal has spoken up.

Dr. Igbeneghu who spoke via a video published by the BBC cleared the air on the allegation trailing him, stating that he never touched the reporter of the BBC Africa Eye who posed as a 17 year-old girl seeking admission during the undercover operation.

He said that she was the one who reached out first by greeting him and also asking him out.

Dr. Igbeneghu also revealed that he only invited the reporter for a birthday party which was held at the Cold Room.

Recall that the Africa Eye had published a year-long documentry in which it documented  sexual assult and attrocities being carried out by lecturers in institution of higher learning such as the University of Lagos and University of Ghana.

In the documentry, the lecturer at the Faculty of Arts in Unilag, and the current sub-dean was heard boasting that though in his 50s, all he needed to get a 17 year-old girl was to sweet talk and throw money at her.

He was also heard saying:

“Switch off that light, I’ll kiss you for a minute,” he said.

Dr. Igbeneghu also questioned the undercover journalist about her age and sexual life.

“Everything that we discussed here, be assured that your mother will not hear and anything that happens between me and you, nobody will hear about it,” Boniface told the young undercover journalist.

A year-long undercover investigation by the Africa Eye of BBC Nigeria led to the release of a 13 minute viral clip in which Dr. Igbeneghu was heard trying to groom a female undercover BBC reporter who pretended to be a  17 year-old girl seeking addmission.

The leadership of Foursquare in Nigeria has since reacted to the development.

A statement signed by the National Secretary of Foursquare in Nigeria,  Rev. Ikechukwu Ugbaja said that the church does not condone with such heinous and unscriptural act among its ministers.

“The general public is hereby informed that as a holiness and Bible-beliving church,  we do not condone with such heinous and unscriptural act among its ministers. We totally disassociate ourselves from the purported conduct of  Dr. Igbeneghu and promise to take appropriate measure as soon as the ongoing investigation is concluded.”

Further, the statement said that Dr. Igbeneghu has been asked to step down from all ministerial assignments.
