A fact-finding committee launched inner investigation after the Punch newspaper had published an article in April this year titled: “School Where Prostitutes Assist Male Students to Get Marks”

Mr Kazaure said: “The summary of the publication indicated that students hire prostitutes or beg their girlfriends to sleep with lecturers on their behalf in order to earn higher grades in their courses.

The lecturer chooses a hotel of his choice and the affected students pay the hotel bills, which include the meals before the action.

Some of the lecturers give the option of paying by cash, which cost between N10, 000 and N20, 000, which could give the student not more than a ‘C’ grade.

We promptly informed the Minister of Education, Independent Corrupt Practices and other related offences Commission (ICPC), Economic and Financial Crime Commission (EFCC) and Department of Security Services (DSS).”

It took a week for the committee that comprised of representatives from EFCC, ICPC, DSS, NBTE and the Federal Ministry of Education to investigate and then propose long-lasting solutions to the problem.
