UNILORIN Lecturer That Was Beaten Unconscious By A Student Speaks: “He Said I Sent Someone To Kill Him”

The lecturer that was involved in the assault at the University of Ilorin has come out to share her side of the story.

Recall that the lecturer identified as Dr. Rahmat Zakariya, a lecturer at the Department of Microbiology was beaten to an unconscious pulp by a final year student, Waliyullah Saludeen popularly known as Captain Walz on Thursday, November 11.

In an exclusive interview with Daily Trust, Dr. Zakariya also clarified what she termed as misconceptions about the incident.

“I Am Neither His Level Advisor Nor Supervisor” 

The first misconception Dr. Rahmat cleared up was that she was neither his Level Adviser nor supervisor. She just a lecturer at the department and the Students Industrial Work Experience Scheme (SIWES) Coordinator and it was on that basis that they met.

Another misconception was the news making the rounds that she threw a mug at him.

“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? “

Speaking on when they initially met, she said it was when he came to tell her that he didn’t do SIWES because he was ill. So she asked him to get a medical report to back that up and he didn’t. So she told him he would need to re-register SIWES.

“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 program 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 a 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.”

“He Barged Into My Office And Asked Why I Was After His Life”

Speaking on the events of that day, Dr. Rahmat said he barged into her office and asked her why she was after his life.

According to her, he addressed her by her name saying she sent one Azeez to kill him.

“When he barged into my office, he did so with a smile in his face. The courteous thing was to knock and open but he just pushed the door with force, addressing me by my name that Zakariya why am I after his life and why did I send one Azeez to come and kill him. He was asking me in Yoruba how much I paid the people I sent to kill him. What do I have to do with someone of such character?”

He started banging on her table, swearing, and using the F-word. Imagine him telling me that. Then suddenly, he moved closer to her chair and started punching her and that was when she started screaming for help.

When asked if she was alone at the time, she said two of her female students in the inner lab

came pleading with him to let go of her. “One was a Niqobite and the other one was a very slim girl. But he threatened to kill them before he kills me if they moved closer.”

‘Yes, I had now gone outside opening several doors to my colleagues’ offices screaming for help but none of them was available. So, when he noticed I couldn’t get any help, he turned back and started chasing me until we got to the General Lab. When I got there, I quickly locked the door and he kept banging the door

There were two offices inside the general lab but they were both locked. When he noticed that I had locked the door, he went to the window and broke the louvers with his bare hands, I was shocked. He then removed his shoe and used it to clear the broken pieces to enable him enter without getting injured. Although he was strapping a bag, I didn’t see him with any weapon or ammunition. But after that action, I was sensitive to the fact that he might want to use the broken pieces of the Louvres to stab me

So, I quickly went back to the door, open it, and started running. He entered through the window and continued pursuing me. He was able to catch up with me and started punching me while I was on the ground, that was the video that many people saw. But that was his third attempt at trying to kill me. If you look at the video properly, you will see that it was until the person who came handed me over to someone else before he was able to chase him. He was initially walking away majestically. He wanted to leave me at that point because he felt I was unconscious and he has accomplished his aim. It was just God that saved me, Alhamdulillah”
