An undercover journalist with the BBC Africa Eye, Kiki Mordi, says she received threats after completing an investigation which exposed sexual harassment in West African universities.
A lecturer and former sub-dean of the Faculty of arts at the University of Lagos, Dr. Boniface Igbeneghu, who is also Head Pastor of a Foursquare Gospel Church, was exposed in a 13 minutes video documentary published by the BBC Africa Eye on Monday.
Igbeneghu was caught on camera sexually harassing an undercover reporter who posed as an admission seeker in the institution.
Mordi said her investigation was related to the experience she had while in university, which forced her to drop out of school.
In an interview with Sahara Reporters, Mordi said since the investigation was completed, she has been receiving subtle threats.
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 bulk of the ritual I performed were reading, research and preparation.
“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.”
