Gazelle News reports:

The ugly incident allegedly happened on 15th January, 2014 at upper buttery of the popular Awolowo Hall on the campus.

It was reliably gathered that Izuchukwu, a 300 level student of the Faculty of Law of the institution, attempted to have carnal knowledge of a fellow student when the victim was reading one of the halls at about 4am.

The victim was said to have fallen asleep when there was power outage before the gay student approached him, started caressing him and attempted inserting his manhood into his anus.

Luck however was said to run out of Izuchukwu when the victim woke up and raised alarm. The gay suspect was said to have taken to his heels before some students chased and apprehended him at the neighbour female hall of residence called Mozambique.

Some concerned students were said to have dispensed justice on Izuchukwu by given him ten strokes of the cane and also ordered him to write an apology letter and paste same on all boards in the campus’ halls of residence.

  1. i think a facility for sexual reorientation should be created cos i dont see any other way around this ailment that is spreading far and wide.

  2. This homosexual issue is becoming endemic. It is a total gross disorder and disobedience to God standard and human nature as regard to the subject matter. We should all go back to God and also have this in our educational curriculum for proper understanding.
