Two lecturers of the University of Ghana have been interdicted after they were implicated in a BBC documentary on sexual harassment.

Prof. Ransford Gyampo of the Political Science Department and Dr Paul Kwame Butakor a lecturer at the Department of Teacher Education of the School of Education and Leadership were filmed making sexual advances to ‘students’ who were actually undercover investigators.

Less than 48 hours of the broadcast titled ‘Sex for grades’, the University of Ghana has announced their interdiction. The two are also expected to face the University’s Anti-sexual harassment committee probing the scandal.

”...the University has taken a decision to interdict Prof. Ransford Gyampo and Dr Paul Kwame Butakor, the two lecturers featured in the documentary to allow for further investigations into the matter.

“In line with University regulations, the two will be invited by the Anti-Sexual Harassment Committee in the next few days to assist with further investigations into the BBC documentary,” the University said in a statement issued on Tuesday.
