With the ongoing investigation concerning sexual harassement of students across Universities, Journalist involve in the investigation has start receiving death threat.
BBC Journalist, Kiki Mordi who was behind the investigation has stated that she has been receiving death threat ever since the investigation went viral but she’s not bothered about it.
Kiki Mordi who revealed that the her personal experience led her into the investigation as she had to drop out of school reveal this while speaking to Sahara reporters.
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 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.”
