A Magistrate’s Court in Ilorin has remanded one Salaudeen Waliu Aanuoluwa, a 400 level Microbiology student of the University of Ilorin in the Ilorin Correctional Service Centre for allegedly beating up a female lecturer, Mrs Rahmat Zakariyat.
The police, in the First Information Report (FIR), stated that the suspect had consumed some hard drug before going to the lecturer’s office, who was the Students Industrial Training Work Scheme (SIWES) coordinator of the department.
“He reportedly banged her table, shouting that the lecturer should award him marks for the SIWES, which he did not participate in.
“He punched the lecturer when she rejected her demand and beat her blue and black, to the extent of breaking the window louvres in an attempt to stab her with the pieces.
“The lecturer’s scream for help attracted the attention of security operatives who thronged to the scene and rescued her from Waliu,” the charge sheet stated.
Magistrate Muhammed Ibrahim ordered Waliu’s remand and adjourned the matter to November 26 for further hearing.
