Unilag shuts down ‘coldroom’ where lecturers go to touch female student’s breast

Ebun Francis| The University of Lagos on Monday shut-down the ‘Cold Room’, where lecturers allegedly sexually assault students.

The Principal Assistant Registrar (Communication Unit) of the university, Taiwo Oloyede made the disclosure while speaking with PT following the release of the BBC documentary on sexual harassment of female students by lecturers.

The ‘Cold Room’ was mentioned by a lecturer of the school, Boniface Igbeneghu, in the documentary.

In the documentary, Igbeneghu described the room as a place where lecturers meet to “touch students’ breast” at the staff club of the university.

According to him, “nothing good comes free” and the ‘cold room’ experience is the price some female students have to pay to have good grades.

The University, earlier on Monday announced the suspension of Igbeneghu over allegations of sexual assault disclosed in the documentary.

The Foursquare Church where Igbeneghu is a part-time pastor, also barred him from conducting pastoral activities in the Church.
