Two Ghanaian lecturers who were secretly filmed sexually harassing undercover BBC reporters have been suspended pending an investigation. The suspensions follow similar action against two lecturers in Nigeria, who were also filmed by the BBC. Footage of the University of Ghana lecturers was broadcast on Monday as part of a documentary by the BBC's Africa Eye investigative unit, exposing sexual harassment and misconduct by lecturers at prestigious institutions in West Africa. The University of Ghana said Professor Gyampo and Dr Butakor had been called to appear before a committee to give evidence. Speaking after the broadcast of the film, the chairperson of the Anti-Sexual Harassment and Misconduct Committee at the University of Ghana, condemned the conduct of the Ghanaian lecturers seen in the footage.
