However in an exclusive interview with DAILY TRUST, the soft spoken female lecturer narrated her ordeal in the hands of her assaulter

There have been several reports out there about the incident, what is your own side of the story?

Thank you very much. Let me first point out the loopholes from the stories that had gone viral. When I was giving my statement to the police after what transpired, I was told he (Waliyullah) didn’t deny any of my account. 

She also deny, throwing a mug at waliyullah, as it was widely reported by some online publications

“The story of me throwing a mug at him is baffling to me. What chance did I have? There was none. This was someone who barged into my office and was saying I sent someone to kill him. He was banging on my table and punching me. So, how is it possible for me to throw a mug at him?

She also clarified her position as to not being a level adviser to the student 

“I have seen a lot of publications that said that I’m his Level Adviser and supervisor. But none of this is true. I’m neither his Level Adviser nor Supervisor, I’m just a lecturer at the department and the SIWES Coordinator”.

Waliyullah who claimed to be ill, was told to show up with his medical report, as opposed to the viral story of being arrested and wrongfully locked up by the police, as narrated by the female lecturer 

“If at all we had contact prior to that day, November 11th, 2021, it was when he met me to tell me that he didn’t do his SIWES, that he only spent a month at the programme and I asked him why didn’t he complete it.

He said he was ill. I told him to get his medical report to show that he was truly ill and take it to where he did his SIWES, he could be lucky and they may be compassionate enough if he was diligent when he was there to help him endorse the remaining part of the logbook and he left.

He didn’t show up again. Then, I met him again on the university walkway and inquired why I didn’t see him again and if he has gotten his medical report. He said he had sent for it but he was yet to receive it. I was wondering why medical report will become such an issue if truly he was sick. Then about two days after, I met him with his Level Adviser and I said he has to re-register SIWES. But the level adviser only smiled when I was giving him the way around it”

The lecturer also alleged that waliyullah also threatened to kill her 

“He later went outside, saying that those people who did what I did to him in the past lost their lives in the process and that I wouldn’t try it with him again in my life”. 

She claimed  said that Waliyullah ran after her, after she ran out of the lab, where she sought refuge from the student threatening her life, the student descended on her, until she became unconscious, and wanted to run away before other student arrested him

The story have condemned by meaningful, and responsible Nigerians who felt that, it was disrespectful, and distasteful to our education

Waliyulah has been handed over to the police, after his expulsion from the school
