UNILAG lecturer allegedly gives corporal punishment to students
By Sewe Ishola
A University of Lagos lecturer, one Mr Ogunkunle was allegedly dishing out corporal punishment to students in his class.
According to reports on Instagram, the lecturer had asked students to knee down and raise their hands in the manner of punishment given to primary school students, after they failed to spell a word correctly.
The eyewitness revealed that the incident had happened during a Geography class in the Faculty of Arts.
The source added that “It’s not as if this is the norm in Unilag. But this particular lecturer has been terrorizing us.
We have other lecturers who behave well, but this particular man is just something else. I mean why will you tell adults like this to kneel and raise up hands, just because they were not able to spell a particular word. .
This lecturer rarely comes to class. When he comes he spends most time sending students out and threatening them. He is just a disgrace to this wonderful university. We have very brilliant, decent lectures who respects us for who we are.
We are please begging the university to help caution lecturers like this so that our great Unilag won’t be a laughing stock amongst other universities.”
