CITATION OF Motunrayo Joel,

WINNER OF THE INVESTIGATIVE REPORTING


Motunrayo Joel’s winning work, Ovum Trading: Inside Nigeria’s Multi Million Naira Human Egg Business, is an insightful record of an ethnographic effort from the pen of a Journalist to watch.

In delivering this work, Motunrayo Joel visited three (3) Fertility Clinics in Lagos and posed as a young lady willing to sell her eggs for money. This explorative exercise lasted for two (2) months before this report was written. It is a commendable public service to educate the public on the extent people are willing to go in the name of money even at grave risks to their health.

Motunrayo’s report is adjudged as an impressive first-time entry and a strong example of insightful and responsible reporting for the benefit of the society.

A graduate from Midrand Graduate Institute, Johannesburg, South Africa (in 2007), Motunrayo is a journalist to watch.
