A magistrate court has remanded Salaudeen Waliu, the final-year student of the University of Ilorin (UNILORIN), who beat a female lecturer at the federal correctional centre, Ilorin, Kwara state.


Waliu was alleged to have attacked the lecturer identified as Rahmat Zakariyau in her office after she “refused to help him graduate” following his failure to do the mandatory students’ industrial Work experience scheme (SIWES).

The microbiology student was brought before the court situated in Ilorin, the state capital, on Thursday.

The first report by the police was said to have shown that the student took hard drugs before going to the lecturer’s office.


Muhammed Ibrahim, the magistrate, who presided over the case, ordered that the embattled student should be remanded at the correctional centre.

Ibrahim also adjourned the case to November 26 for further deliberation.

The court’s verdict comes a few days after the varsity expelled the student over his action.


Waliu had earlier opened up on how he assaulted the lecturer.

”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 threw a mug at me which injured me and I started beating her,” he had said.

“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.”
