Gambo Abdul, a senior lecturer in the Department of Public
administration at the Ahmadu Bello University Zaria, has been arrested
for allegedly harassing a male student Abubakar Abdulkareem into being his gay partner.The
student had severally rebuffed the advances of the lecturer who wanted
him to be his gay partner but became agitated when the lecturer
threatened failure if he refused to succumb. It was gathered that
following the threat from the lecturer who is from Minna, Abubakar
reported the case to his parents. Consequently, the family of the
student decided to investigate further and found out that the claim of
their ward was true.
The student was instructed to play along
last weekend when the said lecturer invited him to a hotel located at
Eastern Bye Pass in Minna. The lecturer made advances and was
apprehended and taken to Chanchaga police division.
LEADERSHIP that his ordeal in the hand of the lecturer started over two
years ago when he was doing his Diploma programme at the University
before he gained admission for his degree programme.
He said that
the said Lecturer was his caretaker which was why he was close to him
but decided to stay away from him when he started to make illicit
advances towards him.
When contacted the police Public relation
Officer, Pius Edobo confirmed the incident, adding that the case would
be charged to court.
