Today, the Nigerian Press reported the incredible attack of a student in the Faculty of Life Sciences of the University of Ilorin to have attacked his Lecturer in her office last Thursday.

The unwarranted physical attack of the Female Lecturer Mrs Rahmat Zakariyyah featured heavy battering and pursuance of victim by the assailant who continued the serious beating of her Lecturer who was trying to escape even after she fell down knocking her head on a hard object. This is serious!

Report further confirmed that the University Authorities has pledged to take all lawful acts necessary to ensure that the culprit is given deserved purnishment; stating that the Vice- Chancellor of the University Professor Sulaiman Abdul-Kareem has visited the victim of the undeserved barbaric attack to sympathise with her over the unfortunate incident and assured her of the University of taking further necessary action it deems fit.

The Muslim Media Watch Group of Nigeria has condemned in strong terms the criminal act of the unruly student that committed the terrible attack on her Lecturer describing it as irresponsible, barbaric, animalistic and unpardonable.

In strongly-worded Press Statement issued in Ilorin today by the National Coordinator of Group Alhaji Abdullahi Ibrahim, the Group called on the Kwara State Commissioner of Police to ensure early prosecution of the suspect of the crime; adding that Almighty Allah saved the life of the victim – Mrs Rahmat Abdulkareem as she fell-down while running away from her attacker and knocked her head on a hard object before she was rescued and taken to the Hospital by her fellow Lecturers.

Muslim Media Watch Group of Nigeria stated further in its Press Statement that – Education would continue to be in danger if any irresponsible student no matter his or her family background or status could pounce of any Lecturer for beating for whatever reason…..The Group also challenged all University Unions such as ASSU, NASU and SUG etc to be at alert and be interested  in issues like this so that such unfortunate incident would never occur again in the ‘Better by Far University’.

The Group concluded by calling on the University of Ilorin Authorities to intensify its war against cultism and all other forms of crimes which usually prompt irresponsible reaction of this nature that has brought the suspect into the ‘Police Net’.

The Muslim Media Watch Group of Nigeria says it  would monitor this case of physical assault and attempted murder to its logical conclusion to ensure that criminals are ‘sent packing’ from our Institutions of Higher Learnings and culprits purnished so as to serve as deterrent to others.
