UNILAG Lecturer Fights Dirty: tears woman's cloth at petrol station

A lecturer of the reputable University of Lagos, (Unilag) Mr Arthur Avwokeni Joseph has reportedly involved in a show of shame at a Lagos petrol station.

According to PM News, he was recently detained at Alade Police Station, Somolu, Lagos State, western Nigeria, after he allegedly fought a lady at the petrol station and tore her clothes.

It was gathered that Joseph, 47, who works at the Business Administration Department of the university, went to a filling station along Fola Agoro Road, Somolu to buy fuel when there was an altercation between him and 28-year old Adeparusi Yetunde over who should buy the product first.

Joseph was alleged to have alighted from his car and told Yetunde that if she were one of his students he would have dealt with her. continue after the cut....

After the threat and further exchange of words between them, Joseph allegedly slapped Yetunde and in the ensuing scuffle her clothes were also torn.

P.M.News also learnt that Joseph seized Yetunde’s cell phone while Yetunde also seized some of his books.

Investigations by our correspondent revealed that after the incident, Joseph went to Alade police station and reported the incident.

When asked of the whereabouts of Yetunde, he said he did not know.

He was then asked to write a statement and while writing the statement, Yetunde’s phone that was with Joseph rang and when the police picked the call and asked if she was the owner, she said yes and she was asked to come to Alade Police station where it was discovered that her clothes were torn.

According to a source at the station, Joseph and Yetunde were both detained after they wrote their statements but were later granted bail.

Hmmmm..... Unilag Lecturer or not, he's got his own emotions and blood running in his veins like every other human being, I just think he suppose to have cautioned himself to be a good ambassador of the University and as a lecturer, he's expected to be of good morals.
