A lecturer at the Ahmadu Bello University (ABU), Zaria was arrested on Sunday night at a private female hostel in Samaru, Zaria.
It was gathered that, the lecturer disguised himself with Hijab (veil) and tried to sneak into the hostel before he was caught.
Khalifa Sha’aibu, one of the eye witnesses alleged that, It was not the first time the lecturer was entering the hostel to visit his girlfriend.
“The most annoying thing is the fact that the man uses Hijab. As a Muslim, I feel sad that somebody would use something that women of faith are known with to perpetrate crime. I wonder why the man would not get a hotel room to perpetrate his immoral act. It was a vigilante member that noticed the identity of the man and exposed him. After he was caught, we discovered that he has been entering the hostel with the consent of the girl. The owner of the private hostel had barred men from entering the rooms.” Shaibu said
It was further gathered that the lecturer was handed over to a team of army personnel that operate at a check-point close to the university and the officers have searched the lecturer’s house.
Director of Public Affairs in the university, Dr. Ismail Shehu, when contacted said he heard something like that but that no official report has been made. He said that immediately an official report is received, the university will take action.
“As you know, ABU does not tolerate indiscipline. Investigation would be carried out and both the lecturer and student would be punished accordingly. There is no doubt about that,” he said.
