Mrs. Zakaria, the student’s project supervisor, is said to be the victim.
According to reports, the event occurred on Thursday.
It was learned that the student went to the woman’s office to seek her assistance regarding his failure to complete his SIWES.
Following the lecturer’s refusal, Walz allegedly grew enraged and struck Mrs Zakariya, causing her serious injuries.
She was taken to the hospital for treatment later.
Mr Kunle Akogun, the institution’s Director of Corporate Affairs, verified the news to Ejes Gist News over the phone on Saturday night.
“Yes, the incident occurred, but the lecturer’s condition is now stable.” Prof. Abdulkareem Age, the Vice Chancellor, paid her a visit along with some Deans and other university employees.
“They described the situation as regrettable and promised that justice will be served.
“He (Professor Age) ordered proper care of the victim on the university bill,” Akogun continued.
