UNN lecturer caught pants down inside office with student



A lecturer of University of Nigeria Nsukka, UNN, has been caught pants down inside his office with a female student.

The man whose name is yet to be ascertained by newsmen is said to be a lecturer in the School of General Studies of the institution.

The victim is alleged to be someone’s wife.

A voice in the viral video said: “We have been following this case from day one. As you can see we have all the chats, voice notes, videos and everything.”

Commenting under the video, a student identified the man in the video, claiming he taught him Peace and Conflict, a course under General Studies, during his time in UNN.

He said: “That is my lecturer in UNN, he taught us Peace and Conflict under GS in my time. We called him or rather, he called himself “The Short Man.” He was very strict with us in class. It’s unfortunate that he was involved in this.”

Another source said: “When he wants to sleep with someone’s wife? Well, it was planned by her husband, UNN security with some students. Even when the lady offered him money he refused. Well, with this, if he still remains, he will never try that again”.

When contacted to speak on the matter, the Public Relations Officer of the institution said he was yet to see the video.

He said he would investigate to find out if it’s true.

Meanwhile, a lecturer, who sought to remain anonymous identified the location of where the incident happened as a GS building. He, however, said he couldn’t disclose the name of the man in the video.

Justice served: Two defendants await sentence for motorcycle theft



In a recent case brought before the Magistrates’ Court in Kafanchan, Kaduna State, the wheels of justice turned decisively as two individuals, John Simon and Yusuf Nikie, found themselves facing the weight of the law for their involvement in the theft of a motorcycle. Their guilty pleas echoed through the courtroom, leading Magistrate Michael Bawa to order their remand in a correctional facility pending further proceedings, with the final judgment slated for May 2.

Simon and Nikie stood accused by the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps, charged on two counts: conspiracy and theft. The narrative unfolded as Prosecutor Marcus Audu presented the facts to the court. According to Audu, the saga began when Tanko Umaru, the aggrieved party, filed a report at the corps’ office in Kafanchan on April 13, detailing the disturbing incident.

The prosecution outlined the sequence of events, alleging that the defendants brazenly entered Umaru’s residence in Bakin Kogi and absconded with his prized possession—an emblem of mobility and livelihood—a Bajaj motorcycle. Yet, their scheme was thwarted as the long arm of the law swiftly intervened. The diligent efforts of law enforcement culminated in the apprehension of Simon and Nikie during the investigative process, with the stolen motorcycle discovered in their possession, serving as damning evidence against them.

The gravity of their actions was underscored by the legal framework within which they operated. Audu emphasized that Simon and Nikie had transgressed against the provisions outlined in Sections 58 and 270 of the Kaduna State Penal Code Law, reflecting the severity of their offenses under the jurisdiction of the court.
