BBC’s investigative journalist Kiki Mordi who has released a heartbreaking documentary of how some West African lectures s*xually harass students has already received death threats over the documentary.
In an interview with SaharaReporters, the journalist disclosed that she has received ‘subtle’ death threats from some unknown assailants since the released of the documentary.
According to her, she is not perturbed because the BBC ensures the safety of their employees.
‘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 training I received over and over again because I wanted to get it right.’
Commenting on the documentary, she noted she’s happy it’s making the impact she expected as giving justice to the deserved.
She disclosed that one of the lectures at Legos University who was filmed s*xually harassing a student in the video has been dismissed.
‘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.’
