Joy Mordi, the mother of British Broadcasting Cooperation (BBC) Africa Eye investigative journalist, Kiki who pioneered the ‘Sex For Grade’ documentary that exposed lecturers in the University of Lagos and University of Ghana, has commended her.
The journalist revealed this through her Twitter post where she noted her mum had sent her a text on WhatsApp reading “I’m so glad and proud of you”.
Recall that a BBC documentary, BBC Africa Eye making the rounds revealed a senior lecturer, Dr Boniface Igbeneghu, and former sub-dean in the Faculty of Art, University of Lagos, Akoka (UNILAG) making sensual advances towards an ‘assumed 17-year-old girl’ seeking admission in the prestigious university.
Reacting to the video, concerned Nigerians, including the Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar and the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila have taken to their social media platforms to strongly condemn the act of sexual harassment, while some shared their encounters with lecturers in different Nigerian universities.
However, it was gathered that the embattled lecturer Boniface Igbeneghu has been suspended by the authorities of the University.
