Waliyullah Salaudeen, a 400 level microbiology student who was expelled from the University of Ilorin for beating up a female lecturer, Dr. Rahmat Zakariya, has been remanded in custody.
He was remanded in custody awaiting trial after police summoned him at the Ilorin District Court on Friday.
According to the Police First Intelligence Report (FIR), Salaudeen had taken some powerful drugs before going to his lecturer’s office.
The accusation form added: “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 louvers with an attempt to stab her with the pieces.
“The lecturer screaming for help attracted the attention of the security operatives who thronged to the scene and rescued her from Waliu’s net.”
Police prosecutor and inspector, Nasr Yusuf, urged the court to remand the defendant.
But the defendant’s lawyer, A.B Bakare, applied for bail for his client. He said that his client was innocent until he is proven guilty.
Muhammad Ibrahim, the magistrate presiding over the case, ordered Valiu to be remanded in custody and adjourned the matter until November 26, 2021, for further hearings.
