Recalled that video of the alleged harassment was shown on Monday as part of a documentary by the BBC’s Africa Eye investigative unit, exposing sexual harassment and misconduct by lecturers at prestigious institutions in West Africa.

Meanwhile , the university stated that Professor Gyampo and Dr Butakor had been asked to appear before a committee to give evidence.

Speaking after the broadcast of the film, the chairperson of the Anti-Sexual Harassment and Misconduct Committee at the University of Ghana, Dr Margaret Amoakohene condemned the conduct of the Ghanaian lecturers seen in the footage.

“Unacceptable, inappropriate behaviour that is really an affront to their positions as lecturers at the University of Ghana,” Amoakohene  said.

She stated that the committee would make recommendations to the university authorities only after an investigation had concluded.

According to her, “What we are doing now is to open our doors to other victims to come and testify to us as to what their experiences have been, whether they are current students or past students. We invite them to come and tell us.”
