BBC Africa's Sex for Grades documentary exposes sexual harassment on college campuses in Nigeria and Ghana.

BBC Africa’s documentary, Sex For Grades: Undercover Inside Nigerian and Ghanaian Universities, exposes the culture of sexual harassment, exploitation and abuse that exists in the university system. More than 2 million people have viewed the viral documentary on YouTube.

Universities in Nigeria and Ghana have been plagued by stories of sexual harassment by lecturers and professors for decades. Allegations include a wide array of abuses, from blackmailing students for sex in exchange for marks and admission to lewd comments and grooming. After gathering dozens of testimonies, BBC Africa Eye sent undercover journalists posing as students inside the University of Lagos (UNILAG) and the University of Ghana to capture footage of the sexual harassment. Reporter Kiki Mordi, who knows first-hand how devastating sexual harassment can be, reveals what happens behind the closed doors of some of West Africa’s most prestigious universities.
