Prostitutes help up marks at Edo tertiary institution

09 April 2016, 15:13

Abuja - A recent investigation at a tertiary institution in Edo State has revealed startling incidents of prostitution and extortion in exchange for good grades.

According to a Punch report, male students at Auchi Polytechnic in Auchi, Edo State, have resorted to hiring sex workers to sleep with lecturers in order for them to obtain high marks.

For females at the institution, the reality is much harsher, with many women resorting to having to sleep with randy lecturers in order to pass their courses.

One witness, an HND students who spoke on condition of anonymity, claimed that some students are even forced to pay lecturers to get a passing grade.

“The better ones among the lecturers give us the option of paying by cash for the course or finding a lady who will sleep with them on our behalf before we can pass. Passing a course costs us between N10,000 and N20,000.”

Alex, an accounting students, explains how sex is used as a bartering tool on campus.

“The reality is we can’t pass their courses by mere brilliance. Only one or two lecturers are sane in my department. They don’t ask for anything. We read hard to pass their own courses. For the rest, sex is the key. This is why most of us don’t fidget when exam period approaches. We know the way out. The lecturers have shown us,” he said.

Lending his voice to condemn the immoral actions of the lecturers, Bisoye Odubona, a Lagos lawyer, claims that the "devilish practice" by educators may change the course of the students lives and instead turn them into riff-raff.
