And the alleged culprit is a lecturer of the Medical Laboratory department, Dr. Desmond Izunwanne.
One of the students in the lecture hall used a spy camera to record the moment when the lecturer was pressing the lady to respond on why she came to lecture in mufti and not her laboratory jacket. He slapped her at least thrice before the recording ended.
According to reports, the student was feeling unwell and had explained to Dr Izunwanne that she had visited the hospital just before arriving for his class.
Dr Izunwanne ignored her explanation and proceeded to slap her multiple times asking her, “what’s your reason for coming to class late?”. He further also asked her why she was on mufti and told her to continue to kneel. It is reported that the affected student was actually pregnant.
Eyewitnesses said that this isn’t the first time Dr Izunwanne has engaged in such a barbarous action. He has now come under condemnation from social media users with many traveling to his page to demand an explanation.
