In the advent of the s3x for grades documentary done by BBC journalist, Kiki Mordi, revealed that she has been receiving threats since the work was completed.
She said this to Sahara Reporters on Monday and added that the undercover investigation into sexual harassment of female students by male lecturers at the University of Lagos and the University of Ghana respectively was met with applauds.
The investigation, which took almost a year, saw Mordi and other undercover female journalists secretly filming randy lecturers in both universities trying to use their positions to demand sex from young ladies in order to favour them academically.According to Mordi, who said on Monday that the project was inspired by her personal story, she is not bothered by those threats because the BBC takes the security of employees very seriously.
She said, “I have received subtle threats since this work was completed but I am not bothered because the BBC takes the security of employees seriously.
“Before embarking on this project, the team prayed a lot and also sang because it helped to calm the nerves.
“But I had to go through the training I received over and over again because I wanted to get it right.
“The bulk of the ritual I performed were reading, research and preparation.
“The biggest goal of this work was to be louder than the aggressor because sexual harassment is very loud. I wanted it to be silenced.
“I am happy that a lot is changing already since the documentary was released and I can confirm to you that one of the lecturers at the University of Lagos caught sexually harassing a prospective student has been dismissed by the institution.
“I believe it doesn’t stop there until there is a conviction. We have to break that culture of impunity.”
