The Foursquare Gospel Church pastor and lecturer in the University of Lagos, Dr. Boniface Igbeneghu who was indicted in the sex for grade video released by the British Broadcasting Corporation is being jealously trailed and guarded by friends and family members so he would not do something untoward to himself.
Already, insinuations are rife that the embattled lecturer might be contemplating such but for now,such story is not true
But a close friend of his who spoke with our correspondent,(Church times) anonymously said nothing like that happened.
He however said he was being surrounded by friends and family members noting that it’s unfortunate he was involved in the atrocity.
The friend who is a Christian said he had cause to rejoice with him for rededicating his life to Christ a few months ago. He said he probably was involved in this immoral act before he finally surrendered his life to God’s pruning and direction.
“I have a feeling that he had that weakness long ago. And I have had cause to rejoice with him when he claimed that he had rededicated his life. It is not unlikely that the amorous acts from his end were the days he was battling with the flesh. You will note that the investigation was over a period of nine months and he most likely was still struggling with the flesh all these while.” said the lecturer.
The lecturer who said he wept when he watched the news said he could not comprehend what really went wrong with him. He said he hopes he is able to tell his own side of the story. “The video we see obviously indicts him. But then there could be some undercurrent that led him to making the advances. But the video is so clear that it is difficult to argue against. I hope he has something to tell the world.”
Meanwhile many Nigerians have invaded Dr. Igbeneghu facebook page. His last post which was in June this year has been shared 150 times with 1400 comments. Many of the comments were directed at his person. Some literally cursed, many abused and wondered how he got to the pulpit. Some whom he taught described him as an intelligent fellow who impacted many students.

Pastor Boniface Igbeneghu,
I hope, God helps you tonight. I hope he gives you the strength to take that which I am bringing to you in this letter because believe me, this is not a love letter. It is straight from the heart of a man so irritated and he is nauseating because shit eaters like you are still present in our society.
Like a hole in a boat, I want this message to sink in, that is if you still have a storage capacity in your brain. That is if it has not been completely covered by lust and perversion. Well with that belly I see there, I feel you can at least stomach the reality of what is about to hit you!
Now, has it ever occurred to you, that it is for people like you in our universities, that is why we don’t have graduates who can’t confidently write “original copy received by me”?
Do you know, that the likes of you in our schools is what makes Nigerians never consume local rice planted by our agricultural graduates?
Why we can’t fly planes made by Nigerian Engineering students? Why our graduates go back to start kindergarten in schools abroad because they were students who actually never learnt anything because they bought your grades with their yanshes.
How do you raise the microphone bought with offerings of worshippers to your worm infested mouth and sing “hossanah”, “shout amen”, “even speak in tongues” on Sunday and use the same mouth to suck a girl’s breast on Monday just to offer grades?
How do you look at your wife in the morning andg confidently tell her “darling I love you” knowing down in your heart of hearts you are bloody liar!
