OAU Lecturer Assaults Student
On Wednesday, 16th of March 2016 at 1000 SLT, at a little past noon, Dr. Ogunkunle a lecturer in the Department of Chemistry, Faculty of Science was reported to have assaulted a student from the Department of Demography and Social Statistics named Alaaka Tobi Jibola.
The student who could not contain the treatment later took to the social media to demand for the prosecution and punishment of Dr Ogunkunle. In his release, he said he actually mistook the venue of a Special Elective course which he had registered for, expected to hold at the same hour with the CHM 102 exam the lecturer was coordinating right in that venue. According to Tobi, just as he was making to leave for the exit, the lecturer called him back, to which he responded and explained himself.
"But in a dramatic turn of event, he landed some repeated slaps on me, dragged my belt buckle, pushing me angrily in an attempt to shove me to the ground but eventually ripped my shirt to shreds." Alaaka Tobi recounted.
The incidence was confirmed to our correspondent who arrived at the scene some minutes after the incidence. Speaking with most of the witnesses available, they posed a similar question "How can a Demography student, someone from Faculty of Social Sciences impersonate for someone writing Chemistry exam which he has never had it's knowledge in his life?"
As at the time of filing this report, efforts to reach Dr Ogunkunle for comment has not yielded any development.
