Sex For Grades: BBC journalist receives death threats

'Sex For Grades': BBC journalist receives death threats
BBC journalist, Kiki Mordi

Kiki Mordi, the BBC journalist who went undercover in her bid to expose lecturers who exchange grades for sex, claims she has received death threats, a day after the documentary was broadcast.

She, however, appears unfazed as she told Sahara Reporters her security is paramount to her media house.

“I have received subtle threats since this work was completed but I am not bothered because the BBC takes the security of employees seriously,” she stated.

“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,” she added.

Kiki Mordi, who maintained she is a victim, further mentioned that she is elated about the impact the documentary has made within this short period.

She said: “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.”
