The BBC documentary caught lecturers from the University of Ghana and the University of Lagos in Nigeria in a video trying to allegedly use their positions to demand sex from young ladies who posed as students in their respective schools.

"I have received subtle threats since this work was completed but I am not bothered because the BBC takes the security of employees seriously," a report sighted by YEN.com.gh quoted her to have said.
Touching on the documentary itself, Mordi revealed that the main objective was to get justice for vulnerable students who have been suffering for so long.
"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."
According to the BBC journalist she did her best to do a thorough job despite the existing threats and she is happy with the results so far.
"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.
"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," she was quoted as saying.
