The Ladoke Akintola University (LAUTECH) has reacted to a viral video showing the moment an irate man believed to be an alma mater returned his certificate and demanded a refund of all the fees he paid to the institution.
It was gathered that the graduate returned his degree certificate to LAUTECH and demanded a refund on his degree tuition, citing that he was suffering due to unemployment.
In the video circulating on social media, the man could be seen with a brown file throwing tantrum before an official seated behind what appeared to be a reception counter.
The man, who was heard speaking in Yoruba, said he wants a refund of his school fees because he had been suffering since the time he graduated from LAUTECH and the certificate had not yielded him any financial gain since he acquired it.
“I’m suffering, refund my money.. I’m suffering, take your certificate, return my money,” the graduate was heard saying in the viral video.

When TheCable Lifestyle contacted Fadeyi Lekan, the current spokesperson of LAUTECH, said that he was in Abuja, but added that other university officials he had contacted over the issue denied the incident happened.
“It’s only right that I speak on what I’m able to confirm. I called people in my office and they denied it. I’m in Abuja now. Only if I get back to Ogbomosho would I be able to do an investigation and confirm.
“I saw the video. I couldn’t identify a single person in it, else I would have reached out to hear from them directly,” Lekan said.
