Demand for sexual gratification by persons in authority in exchange for access to resources and opportunities is not new globally. However, anti-corruption efforts have rarely focused on these sorts of crimes as corruption is largely seen from the financial crime lens. Dr Uche Igwe argues that there is a need to incorporate sexual extortion as a form of bribery. He insists that the subject deserves adequate attention from anti-corruption scholars and practitioners as a harmful form of corruption that ought to be reported and punished.
