A former lecturer in the Department of Information Technology, Faculty of Social Sciences, Nasarawa State University, Mohammed Yau Baire has reportedly been arrested after he allegedly demanded sex from a married student to help her secure admission into the institution.
The married student, Hajiya Halimat Abubakar Bashiru, explaining her ordeal with Baire reportedly said she was introduced to the lecturer by her husband because she was seeking admission into the Nasarawa State University. Here is what Halimat said:
“The whole episode began when I went to look for admission at the Nasarawa State University, Keffi. After my husband introduced me to one of his brothers at the university, he asked me about the course I wanted to study and I told him computer science, after which he requested for my phone number for easy communication. But after that, Dr Baire started calling me saying that he is interested in having me as a lover.
“Before I told my husband, he now asked me out and I told him to meet me at my house so if he has anything to tell me, he can say it before my husband, but he insisted that we should meet.”
Baire denied the sex allegation but said he regretted his action, saying it was the handiwork of the devil. He said
“actually, I approached her that I wanted to be in love with her despite the fact that she is married to a prominent person that I know. I told her that all I needed was for her to succumb to me and then she will have the admission at the university”.
Mohammed Yau Baire was arrested and handed over to the Goshen Police Station in Karu local government area of Nasarawa state.
