A lecturer at Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, Osun State, is facing allegations of assaulting a student who declined to turn off her phone during his class. In a widely circulated video, Dr. Ariyo from the Department of Electrical Engineering can be heard instructing the student to switch off her phone, but she resisted.
“You can’t be more than me” he said to her
The student defied his instructions, and in response, the lecturer became agitated, forcibly seizing her phone and pushing her. Lere Olayinka, a former aide to ex-governor Ayo Fayose, who posted the video online, mentioned that the female student suffered bleeding as a result of the assault.
