A University of Lagos UNILAG lecturer, has been called out for forcing some of his students to kneel down and raise up their hands during a lecture. The photos of the students who were forced to raise up their hands and few others kneel down were posted online by a social media user, Zeekyboy, who was an eyewitness.
The lecturer who was identified as Mr Ogunkunle, has been called out by some students of the institution who saw the action as uncalled for. The erring student were allegedly punished and forced to raise up their hands by the lecturer because they couldn’t spell a certain word correctly.
According to Zeekyboy who posted the pictures online, the lecturer rarely comes to class and spends most of his time threatening and sending students out of the class. The incident reportedly occurred during a Geography class.

“It’s not as if this is the norm in Unilag. But this particular lecturer has been terrorising us. We have other lecturers who behave well, but this particular man is just something else. I mean why will you tell adults like this to kneel and raise up hands, just because they were not able to spell a particular word. This lecturer rarely comes to class. When he comes he spends most time sending students out and threatening them. He is just a disgrace to this wonderful university. We have very brilliant, decent lectures who respects us for who we are. We are begging the university management to help caution lecturers like this so that our great UNILAG won’t be a laughing stock amongst other universities.”
