In the documentary, one of the lecturers at the University of Lagos Boniface Igbeneghu, a former sub-dean of Faculty of Arts, made sexual advances at a “prospective student” who claimed to be 17 years old.

The lecturer mentioned “cold room” – a place where lecturers meet to “touch students’ breast” at the staff club of the university.

He said “nothing good comes free” and the ‘cold room’ experience is the price some female students have to pay to have good grades.

But Olunloyo who claimed to be carrying out some investigations alleged that Mordi blocked her on Twitter platform after she questioned her on the report.

Dear @BBCAfrica I’m investigating the #Sexforgrades investigation by #KIKIMORDI. She’s actually BLOCKED me back refusing to answer questions. What I uncovered amounts to hypocrisy. #BBCAfricaneye may be sued in Nigeria after my findings. UNILAG students are cooperating” she tweeted.

Meanwhile, she had berated Mordi for disclosing her identity to the public, according to Olunloyo, that could bring about threats to the young journalist’s life.
