In a bid not to contravene the laws of Academic Staff Union of Universities[ASUU], a lecturer at the Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu University, Uli, Anambra State, on Wednesday, attended to students dressed as Spiderman.
ASUU are currently on a nationwide strike to press home their demands from the Federal Government, who they accused of refusing to honour an earlier agreement.
And the lecturer, who is a strong member of ASUU, had to undergo the transformation so as not to contravene the union’s directive which requires lecturers to stay away from academic work.
According to sources, some of his M.Sc. students wanted to see him to have a final discussion with him before their thesis defence which would come up immediately after the ASUU strike was called off.
It was gathered that some non-teaching staff present when the incident happened, were stunned to see a man dressed in Spiderman costume walking into the office complex. As they greeted the lecturer and called him his name, he ignored every greeting, pretending not to know anyone since he was not ‘human’.
He opened his door, walked in and sat down, waiting for students whom he had told to await the arrival of ‘Spiderman’ to assist them.
