Nigerians have hailed BBC Africa Eye Reporter, Kiki Mordi, over the SexForGrades documentary exposing sexual harassment of students by lecturers.
The 13-minute documentary published on Monday was centered on the University of Lagos (UNILAG) and the University of Ghana.
Mordi, in the documentary, said she too was a victim of sexual harassment during her days in the university.

She said her team took the initiative due to the clamour to expose lecturers in the habit of sexually abusing students.
Nigerians on Twitter have praised her for her work, calling for attention also on private institutions of learning.
Kiki Mordi is our new national hero guys and she must be protected at all cost.

Kiki mordi has to continue this work to private universities too. Madonna needs a purge, I still have ptsd from my experience there.

Praying for more funds for Kiki Mordi's team so they can uncover stories from more unis. A lowdown of at least three from each Geo-political zone would be nice.

God will bless Kiki Mordi ❤️ greatly for this undertaking. She has taken a very bold step and I know the pros will eventually outweigh the cons. And those speaking against this can suck Satan's balls! #SexForGrades
