Professor Gyampo implicated in BBC’s ‘Sex for Grades’ exposé

A political science lecturer at the University of Ghana, Professor Ransford Edward Gyampo has been caught up in the “sex for grades” investigations carried out by BBC Africa Eye.

Professor Gyampo, who is also the Head of European Studies at the University of Ghana, in the compromising video was seen requesting to marry one of the BBC reporters who posed as a student seeking academic favours.

In excerpts of the video released on BBC Somalia’s Facebook page, Professor Gyampo persuaded the reporter to meet him at the mall where he was caught on camera making “numerous inappropriate demands.”

The documentary was commissioned in response to allegations of sexual harassment by lecturers that have hovered over tertiary institutions.

After initial interviews, BBC Africa Eye sent undercover journalists posing as students inside the University of Lagos and the University of Ghana.

The lead reporter in the exposé, Kiki Mordi, said she was also a victim of sexual harassment when she was in school.
