Lecturer allegedly slaps the UNILORIN Students' Union President

The University of Ilorin Students’ Union, has called on the university authority to suspend a lecturer from office for allegedly assaulting the president of the union, Shobowale Lukman.
The call was made in response to the alleged assault of the union president by a lecturer of the university and Sub-Dean of its Faculty of Engineering, T.K Abioye, at the institution’s Computer-Based Test, CBT, centre on Monday.
Trouble started on Monday when Mr. Abioye, a lecturer in the department of Mechanical Engineering, allegedly slapped Mr. Shobowale during a CBT exam.
Sources gathered that Mr. Shobowale had gone to the centre to assist in the co-ordination of the examination process, due to certain logistic issues that had hampered the smooth conduct of the examination at the centre on Thursday, March 2.
While speaking with some newsmen Tuesday evening, Mr. Shobowale disclosed that he had made moves to intervene on behalf of some students from the university’s Teaching Hospital, Oke-Oyi, who could not write their examinations after being at the centre for hours.
He explained that on approaching the lecturers in charge of the centre, he was directed to the secretary of the centre, one Mr. Tomori, who was having a discussion with one Mr. Abdulrahaman and the said Mr. Ajiboye.
“I stood by the side at an appropriate distance,” Mr. Shobowale said, adding that after a while, he indicated his intention to speak with Mr. Tomori, but was greeted with harsh response.
The officials demanded to know whom he was, Mr. Shobowale said, and he identified himself as the students’ union president. He was, however, asked to move away from the officials.
