One Tunde, popularly known as Zacheaus, has been paraded half-naked after being caught with the boxer of his classmate tied with charm in his hostel wardrobe.
LIB reports that the 100 level student of the department of English Language in the College of Education, Ikere-Ekiti, Ekiti State, was disgraced and handed over to the police after the exhibit was found in his wardrobe on Monday, January 29, 2019.
The boxers reportedly belonged to the representative of one of the hostels, Pace Setters Hall, Comrade Akinola Ayomide, popularly known as Mayegun.
Sources at the school have revealed Zacchaeus to be an Internet fraudster, better known as a “Yahoo boy.”
Classmates of the suspect claim that he had been boasting of plans to buy a car before the end of the year, and that there had been cases of boxers going missing in the hotels but that they were usually found.
A source said, “We didn’t trust Zaccheus from the beginning. Lately, he has been singing around that he will purchase a car before the end of this year. One of us, who kept his piano in the wardrobe, wanted to take it out when he, unfortunately, saw the calabash hidden inside the wardrobe.
“On checking it, he found the male underpants of Mayegun. He was able to recognise it because the male underpants has a hole.
“Mayegun had complained that the underpants had loosened and become too big for him before it disappeared. He called on us and we saw the boxer along with schnapps and other fetish items wrapped around it. When we searched the wardrobe further, we discovered two other underwear.
“This provoked other residents of the hostel who resorted to a demonstration. The angry students descended on Zacchaeus and almost beat him to a pulp. Zacchaeus was on the verge of being set ablaze when he was rescued by the porters in the residence, who immediately got in touch with the Director of Students’ Affairs, who in turn, called the security personnel.
“The Directorate of Students’Affairs, the security personnel, and student representative bodies immediately rushed, to the scene to control the situation,” a student of the school told The Nation
The victim, while expressing his shock, said, “I went to town yesterday and on my way back, I saw one of my friends who pointedly told me: ‘You have been used’.
“I couldn’t understand this until I was taken to the room of Zacchaeus where I saw my underwear in a kind of calabash along with schnapps and some fetish items wrapped around it. I could hardly wait for Zacchaeus’ arrival and I asked him how my underwear got to his wardrobe along with those charms. He tried to escape, but we chased and grabbed him.”
Confirming the incident, the Director of Student Affairs, Charles Egunjobi, said the incident was ‘unbelievable and unexpected’, and promised that the management would treat the matter with immediate effect.
“This is really unusual of the school. The management has issued a directive that the guy should be handed over to the police. As you can see, the police from the Ikere-Ekiti Area Command is here.
“Next time, when students are involved in a situation like this, I expect them to find a lasting solution through non-violent means. The students aren’t supposed to make a noise or take laws into their hands,” Egunjobi said.
