Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), Unilorin University branch condemned the attack by a student of the institution on Ms. Rahmat Zakariyyah, a female lecturer in the Faculty of Life Sciences.
The chairman of the association, Professor Moyosore Ajao, made the condemnation in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Ilorin on Monday.
The student allegedly attacked the lecturer in her office because she refused to help him because he did not complete the mandatory Students Industrial Work Experience Scheme (SIWES).
In response, Ajao stated that the union would never allow “this dastardly act to go unaddressed”.
“It is not just because the lecturer is a female but because she is a human being and violence is never tolerated in ASUU, more or less in a university where character and learning are the essences of it.
“ASUU is patiently waiting on what the university management is going to do before we now apply our own action.
“But I can tell you that the union is not sleeping on the matter and we are never going to allow such matters to be swept under the carpet,” he stated he said.
He explained that the attack had been reported to law enforcement agencies.
When guessing whether the student was under the influence of drugs, Ajao observed that in every 12, there will always be one Judas. Ajao said that although most of the students at the institution perform well, there will definitely be elements of rudeness around them.
“The university must demonstrate the capacity to deal with such an act, apart from that they must ensure that such a thing never happens again,” he said.
“You can’t have a student population of over 50,000 and you expect all of them to be disciplined.”
