The fiancé of a 400-level student and his friend, caught Yusuf while he was allegedly prepared to have sex with the said student (Mercy). They made him to mop the living room, wash the toilet, and took his nude pictures, which had gone viral, the Punch is reporting.

The lecturer had reportedly insisted on sleeping with the student so she could pass ENG 201 titled, “History of English Language in Nigeria”.
The final year student, who had failed the course consecutively, became frustrated and feared the lecturer could fail her again, thereby extending her time in the university. She consequently told her fiancé about the problem she was having with the lecturer and a plan was hatched to end the lecturer’s harassment.

Mercy’s fiancé and his friend reportedly went to her residence outside the campus. They told her to invite Mr. Yusuf to come and do what he was demanding while they hid in the toilet. As the lecturer removed his clothes to sleep with her, they came out of the toilet. They gave him a mop to clean the toilet and the living room,” one of the students, who did not want his name in print

“The university management is aware of the recent unfortunate incident between a male lecturer and a female student. In view of this, the management has set up a committee to investigate the immediate and remote cause(s) of the incident. The committee is headed by the deputy vice-chancellor and involves all stakeholders in the matter.
