Anonymous’ Nigerian journalist who worked on #SexForGrades attempts suicide

In October 2019, the BBC released a documentary that sent shock waves through the academic community in West Africa.

Universities in the two leading economies of West Africa had been captured in the documentary allegedly asking for sex in exchange for academic-related favours.

It was shocking, not because it is the first time people have heard of lecturers taking advantage of their positions to coerce students to exchange sex for favours, instead, this is the first time most have us have seen it happen live on a video camera.

The lecturers involved are not actors but real-life highly respected members of the academic communities in their respective communities.

In Ghana, Dr Ransford Gyampo and Dr Paul Butakor were implicated in the Sex For Grades documentary.

When the documentary was released, Kiki Mordi, a Nigerian journalist, was credited for the story, however, it had later emerged that another Nigerian journalist called Ogey Obi, but anonymously referred to as Kemi Alabi was actually the brainchild behind the documentary.

Ogey claims she is the one who developed the idea, researched it and even pitched the story for it to be documented.

However, she claimed to have been unceremoniously sidelined in all the accolades that Kiki Mordi has been receiving.

A couple of days now, Ogey has been posting about it on Twitter. However, her tirade was not well-received by some including, one instance where she alleged some inappropriate conduct by Kiki Mordi and was called out for her comments.

 

 

This led to several harsh criticisms on Ogey, which appeared to be too much for her to take that she reportedly attempted suicide on Sunday, December 13.

However, she was swiftly rushed to the hospital where it is reported that she is responding to treatment.
