Kiki Mordi, the undercover journalist who featured in the video that exposed the UNILAG lecturer has received death threats.
Mordi risked all to bring the lecturer’s sexual advances to the open and has now revealed to Sahara Reporters that she has been threatened since the video went viral. She says she is not bothered by the threats.
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 snag 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 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. – Kiki Mordi
