BBC undercover reporter, Kiki Mordi who posed as a 17-year admission seeker in the “Sex For Grades documentary” said she had received subtle threats since the publication of the video.

Mordi stated this during an interview with SaharaReporters, adding that she’s not bothered because BBC takes the security of employees seriously.

She added that her personal story inspired her to work on the project which took almost a year to complete.

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 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.”
