“Why I Beat Up My Lecturer” – UNILORIN Final Year Student Speaks

A final year student of the University of Ilorin, Salaudeen Waliu, also known Captain Walz, Department of Microbiology, Faculty of Life Sciences, who battered a female lecturer, Mrs Zakariyau, has explained the reasons for his action.

As earlier reported by OrangeCityz, the final student reportedly beat his lecturer to coma after sorting her help because he didn’t observe the compulsory Students Industrial Work Experience Scheme (SIWES).

He claimed to have gone to the office of the female lecturer to beg her to help wave the mandatory SIWES course which he missed due to unforeseen circumstances.

He claimed to have met Mrs Zakariyau numerous times, but all led to negative responses before the last Thursday assault on the lecturer.

Salaudeen Waliu, while speaking to University Campus Journalists, UCJ-Ilorin, claimed that “months before the last Thursday incident, he was arrested and locked up for two months, thereby warranting his inability to attend SIWES duties.”

He said he had gone to Allen Avenue in Ikeja, Lagos State, to meet a friend for the first time. He was waiting for the friend when according to him, he “felt the urge to urinate.

Salaudeen said he urinated near a car parked by drainage when he was challenged by someone who must have washed the car.

He said he was accused of being a thief and was not allowed to explain himself before a mob descended on him, meted out jungle justice and handed him over to the police which led to his detention for a period of two months.

Captain Walz said after the incident in Lagos, he approached Mrs Zakariyau to explain to her his ordeal but the lecturer said there was no help to offer, except he joined the next set which would result in an extra year.

He said on the fateful Thursday when he entered the lecturer’s office, she ordered him out of her office.

I got angry, I don’t know what came over me, I started arguing and she told me to leave her office, I told her if I don’t leave, what is she going to do?

“She then threw a mug at me which injured me and I started beating her,” he added.

Salaudeen said the female lecturer did not fight back, so he went on to beat her and later dragged her out of her office to continue the beating.

I dragged her out and she ran. I chased and kept beating her before people came. I tried to run but was later caught by the school security,” he stated in the security cell of the institution where he was locked up since he was returned from ‘F’ Divisional Police station, Tanke in Ilorin, the Kwara state capital.

The University’s vice chancellor described the incident as sad and unfortunate, assuring that justice will be done on the matter.

He ordered proper care of the victim on the bill of the university.

    I’m not supporting the boy’s action but some of these lecturers just don’t want to help their students most times. They just want them to suffer
