By  | 

The Registrar, Federal University of Technology Akure, Dr. Modupe Ajayi, physically assaulted Mr. Isaac Adams, a clerical officer in her office over a print-out.

The clerk was beaten with fist and then bitten in the head by the registrar.

The fracas according to Sahara Reporters, developed when Dr. Ajayi was told that a print-out of a memo was made using the printer in her office in her absence about 9:30am on Thursday.

“On Thursday morning, Mr. Adams was in the office and trying to download a memo written by the university’s Legal Director to the acting Vice-Chancellor, Professor Tunde Arayela, in respect of the court order issued to the university concerning the payment of staff salaries.

“The memo was posted on our union’s Whatsapp platform but was not easily readable on the phone. This made Mr. Adams use the office printer to print out the memo so that he could conveniently read it,” a source told the online news portal.

Trouble started when another staff in the office informed the registrar of Adam’s action.

In her attempt to forcefully retrieve the memo from Adams the situation led to physical assault.

The professor reportedly hit the clerk with her fist and bit him on the side of his head and the matter was reported to the leadership of the institution’s chapter of NASU, the acting Vice-Chancellor and the Okuta Elerin’la Police Station in Akure.

The matter is still being investigated.
