A man identified as Oludare Alaba says he’s the “irate individual” in the now-viral video involving Ladoke Akintola University (LAUTECH).
Earlier, a video surfaced online showing a young man making a scene within a reception space that many claimed to be in LAUTECH.
In the footage, the man could be seen waving a brown file and arguing with an official seated behind a counter.
Although the video didn’t have much context, there were speculations that the individual was a LAUTECH graduate seeking a refund on his degree tuition due to unemployment.
It was gathered that the man recently visited the school — years after graduation — to express his frustration over his inability to get a job.
The management of LAUTECH, when contacted by TheCable Lifestyle, denied that the conflict ensued within its campus.
But in a follow-up interview video that surfaced on social media, Alaba said he had graduated from LAUTECH’s department of agricultural extension and rural development before 2016 but has since been jobless.
“I collected the certificate but it has been of no use to me. I’ve struggled with life but the only opportunity I’ve come across wanted me to get involved in money rituals,” he said in Yoruba.
“I can’t get involved in such things because I want to be able to help my family.
“I asked my father to help look for funds so I can do something. I’m a great entertainer. It got me multiple awards during my NYSC programme in 2016. But he said the money he borrowed to pay my tuition hadn’t been paid.
“He asked if I would also borrow money to bury their corpse if they pass away. I cried that day.”
As of when this report was filed, Fadeyi Lekan, LAUTECH spokesperson, is yet to respond to inquiries on the new footage.
