Students of the Ghana Institute of Journalism are calling for their school to be investigated for cases of sexual harassment from lecturers.
In social media posts by some these students, they suggested that lecturers in the school would have been implicated if they were investigated.
This comes after BBC Africa Eye released a documentary revealing how lecturers in some West African Universities sexually harassed female students.
According to the BBC, after gathering dozens of testimonies, they sent undercover journalists posing as students inside the University of Lagos and the University of Ghana.
