Professor Ransford Gyampo, one of the lecturers implicated in the BBC Africa ‘Sex For Grades’ documentary was seen in class today after a viral video of him being implicated in a video from BBC Africa was put up online.
The video is an excerpt from the main Documentary that will be premiered later today at 6 pm on all of BBC’s social media platforms.
According to a Political Science student on campus, The Ancient and Medieval political class was scheduled to happen at 11:30 am and Gyampo walked in late with apologies to the class. He went on to address the viral video of him in the ‘Sex For Grades’ documentary and according to the student, he denied all the sexual harassment allegations against him.
He shed a few tears and asked the students for their support with the issue.
From the reactions in the class, the source says that most students have changed their opinions about the video they saw and are now looking at the possibility that their lecturer really could be innocent.
Professor Gyampo is popular amongst his students, both past and present for being a great lecturer who takes time to lecture and explain the courses he teaches in a manner that every student will understand.
The BBC Documentary is yet to be premiered but the excerpts we have seen so far, implicates Dr Ransford Gyampo, Dr Paul Butakor from the Department of Teacher Education and the University of Lagos lecturer, Boniface Igbeneghu.
Gyampo has denied the claims from the video and has allegedly threatened to sue the BBC.
