The victim, identified as Mrs Zakaria is said to be the student’s project supervisor.
The incident, it was gathered, happened on Thursday.

But following the lecturer’s refuser, Walz reportedly became furious and assaulted Mrs Zakariya inflicting severe injuries on her.
She was later rushed to the hospital for treatment.
The Director, Corporate Affairs, of the institution, Mr Kunle Akogun, confirmed the development to Daily Trust in a telephone interview Saturday night.

“They described the incident as unfortunate and assured justice will be done on the matter.
“He (Prof. Age) ordered proper care of the victim on the bill of the university”, Akogun added.
