Kiki Mordi, the BBC journalist who secretly filmed lecturers in University of Lagos and Ghana respectively, using their positions to demand s*x from young ladies in order to give them marks, said she has started receiving death threats from people .

Kiki, however, said she is not bothered by those threats because BBC takes the security of employees very seriously.

She said the project was inspired by her personal story which led to her dropping out of the university.

In an interview with Sahara Reporters, KiKi 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 trainings 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 release 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.”
