- Kiki Mordi says she has received threats as a result of the investigation she did
- The BBC journalist had recently exposed lecturers of some West African universities through a video documentary
- Meanwhile, she says that the change she really desires has started manifesting since the release of the documentary
For investigating and exposing sexual harassment in some West African universities, BBC Africa Eye journalist, Kiki Mordi, has claimed that she received threats after completing her investigations.
Mordi who disclosed this in an interview she had with Sahara Reporters, said though there are subtle threats, she is not bothered because the BBC takes the security of employees seriously.
According to her, the team's unity helped in calming her nerves before she embarked on the investigation.
Going further, she also revealed that she had to go through training, reading and research before the investigation.
In the documentary, Mordi disclosed that she had similar experience while at the university and had to drop out of school. According to her, this motivated her to do the documentary.
She added that the change she really desires has started manifesting since the release of the documentary. However, she noted that more should be done to halt sexual harassment in African universities.
“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,” she said.
Meanwhile, recall that Legit.ng had reported that barely twenty-hours after her daughter, Mordi, exposed lecturers of University of Lagos, Akoka (UNILAG) through a video documentary the mother of the BBC undercover reporter said she is proud of her.
